Is the dish of an NCA/NCL the same size (Width wise) as the dish on a CA?

Do you mean the "saucer"? If so, yes. The NCL uses a highly modified DD saucer (which is itself largely identical to the CA).

The saucer diameter of the NCL/NCA mini and the various flavors of CA minis are within millimeters of each other. The saucer of the new resin SL2500 NCL/NCA is identical to the CA's (at least in the outside edges).

"Dish" is usually used to refer to the main sensor/navigational deflector dish. If you are indeed asking about that, then yes, they are different. The NCL/NCA dish (mounted on a post, under the saucer) has traditionally been about 75% the size of the CA's larger hull-mounted dish. The dish was made even smaller (and somewhat rectangular) for the new resin minis.

I did indeed mean saucer!

And Thank you, that was exactly what I was looking for (The counters have them in all kinds of different sizes)! Smile
