I love the light/dark sides. Just make sure they are lined up properly when on the table!

Those look great!

Uranus has a diameter of 51,118km.

Oberon orbits at 584,000 km, and Titania at 436,000 km. So Oberon is about 11.4 diameters of Uranus away from Uranus, and Titania is about 8.5 diameters away.

If the model of Uranus is 6in in diameter, Oberon will be (6 x 11.4)/12 = 5ft 6in away. So you won't need a giant table.

The space ship in the model is really huge, of course, about 1/5 of 51,118 or 10,224 km, vastly longer than even a Star Destroyer from Star Wars!
