It's Dollhouse scale! Plenty of premade furniture and general items are out there to populate a studio diorama.
Yeah. You'd think so....until you actually start doing a stage dio. I still ended up making almost everything from scratch, and utilizing model ship and railroad aftermarket parts and accessories for help in creating many of the stage, lighting and camera equipment details.

I think the original was 134 inches?

And the model is 11.3 inches?

134 divided by 11.3 equals 11.8584070yaddyadda

So the kit is 1/11.8 scale to the original

But, 11.8584070yaddyadda actually rounds out to 11.9yaddayadda :roll:

To be Spock-like about it...

If the ship is 947' and the model is truly 1:1000, then the following would be the proper calculation:

The "real" ship is 11364"

11364 divided by 1000 means the PL model is 11.364"

The studio model is 134.082" (rounding Kerr's Autocad figure to the same decimal place)

134.082 divided by 11.364 means the model is 1:11.799 scale.

1:12 sounds good to me. :D

I remember measuring out the model with my calipers when I first got it.

The ideal length in scale would be 11.364", with a saucer diameter of 5.004". I remember the caliper nailing the saucer diameter nearly dead-on. There is a little bit of fudging with the length of the model due to the inherent softness and flexibility of the styrene plastic parts fitting together, but essentially, it came out to within a tiny fraction of an inch of being dead-on with the length, too.

So, I would say "yes". It is accurate.
