I wouldn't trust the Cygnus drawings much at all. There are some obvious creative liberties in those designs.

For example:
The Cygnus Aft view shows obvious down curl of the hull towards the nacelles.
The fore view shows the same.

While screenshots found at Memory-Alpha show:
no curl Aft
same with a Fore view

If you keep looking and comparing between the Model used it the shows and the Cygnus sketches, it is easy to see another dozen+ errors in the proportions in the Cygnus drawings.

I wouldn't trust it for proper proportions to properly scale the in-game model.
