Come see this MASSIVE project I did a few years back; a LEGO Lunar Class cruiser to scale with it’s grim dark couterpart:
The colouration (red) washed out some of the depth perception in these photos. Speaking of colour, I would have liked it to be more uniform, but I worked with what I had. Another let down was my inability to incorporate torpedo tubes, due to the complexity of the armoured prow (which is ironically the most fragile part). Although, I do like how the prow turned out, eagle and all.
All in all it is within 85% to scale with the model (mid-size one in the foreground for scale), limited by the size of certain lego pieces and a little short towards the aft (running out of critical structural pieces). The level of detail is better in person.
Not shown is the interior. There are 3 decks and the bridge, each with crew on them. Unfortunately, due to space limitations with keeping it to scale, I had to put the strategium on the main deck rather than the bridge. It still has a rotating door and a command throne though. Right behind the Strategium (which is directly under the bridge) are the engineering spaces and forward of it is a main space, then a hatch, then the gunnery decks. Each Lance turret has operators and the weapons batteries also have crews.
