ask the devs why they rescale the model visuals.

could be to make them easier to ID.

could be to try and excuse the broken manoeuvring dynamic thats causing such a mismatch between ships.
they made the cardie ship bigger and the akira smaller that way they have an excuse for applying magic stats to them on the basis "escort fast, cruiser slow".

could be to cover up for ships like the defiant rarely being the same size on screen from one story to the next.
