Here is comparative photos between an imperial cruiser and one of my cruisers. Certainly she'is smaller but it explains by the fact that vessel Tau is only vessels of colonization / investigation (and no trully warships)

Only bitz of my 40K Tau army.
For the cruiser, it's only a melta with burts canon. Wings are teleport balise.
Dor the battlecruiser, an ion canon for the hull, and some bitz of Tau vehicle

Looking very good so far! There is only one problem, the lack of detail. I have a similar problem with my Ork fleet which you can find here (http://warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=137220). Somebody over at the Troll Forged forums (http://trollsforge.proboards83.com/index.cgi) told me that BFG models should have more than 2...maybe 3mm of flat surface because otherwise the largeness of the ships kind of goes lost. I know that your models are the same size as the BFG stuff, it's just that the lack of detail doesn't make them look as enormous as the official models.

I hope my critique was useful... :)

Fantastic. I like these better than the real ones GW sell !!!

To get more detail simply take a scalpel/knife and score some lines here and there to break up the flat surfaces. Also take paper thin plasticard (1/4 MM, you can get it, I have some) and add little squares with rounded edges randomly too the flat areas.
