I guess I should make the shuttles in the Nebula a little smaller, since the type 8 is only 2.8 meters tall.

Even from what I remember from the final scene of Generations it looks right to me.

Although I think sometimes on TNG the model was used incorrectly. Probably the most obvious one is 'The Pegasus' which appears to be an Oberth design, but when you see it and the Enterprise togther inside the asteroid, it's way bigger than the scale of that image. I never understood why they did that with the Oberth for that episode.

None of which takes away from the terrific work producing them!
