Hmmm please don't let what others are doing affect or drive your design or ideas. Build it upon what you like and what you would like it to be. Perhaps in a game you'd like to play. Much more solid.
For your model it'd be a fine game model I think. It's all about scale and proportion. Put a sugarcube next to your ship and call it empire state building and the ship will appear huge. Put one pilot that takes up half of the main body and the ship will suddenly appear very small, and with unbalanced proportions. Anyway that's besides the point.
Scale, purpose, function, form. It's good to think in those terms
