I'm cruious, I plan on getting the QMX serenity blueprints but until that point I'm looking at the PDF they released and I have a question:

On sheet 5(the above orthe view) what are the measurements in? it looks like 5 foot increments but it's too blurry to tell.

Help.

I'm using this to make a new ship that I'll post when I get further.

It's a very strange scale. It's 1 inch equals 5 feet! I'm trying to draw up a set of blueprints in CAD and it's very hard. I'm trying to use my architect's scale, but with 1"=5' it's difficult. I don't know why they couldn't have made them 1/4" = 1' or something else more standard.

There are no dimensions on the plans, so they're not really blueprints. They're mainly just cross sections and schematics. They just have a graphic scale on each sheet.

Maybe it's meters, not feet. All the specs I've seen are:
"Dimensions and Weights:
She is comparable to that of Boeing 747. She is 63 meters long, 40 meters wide and 18 meters tall."

If you're talking about the Blueprint Reference Pack (which you can still buy) the scale on that particular sheet is 1" to 20'
