Fourteen people played, 12 for the missions and 6 in the epic battle. Imperials beat Rebels solidly but not terribly in the missions, but then Rebels pulled it out in the final showdown, taking the last 2 hull points off the target frigate when they only had ~3 ships left on the board.

Seemed like it all went solidly. As expected, missions were a bit tilted toward the attackers (which are mostly Imperial) but seemingly not in an un-fun way. Couple small tweaks to deployment areas and they'll be pretty fair but maintain that Rebellion-under-siege feel.

In what scale did you design your Nebulon B? 1:450?

I didn't actually design that model. The frigate, Crawler DX-9 Stormtrooper Transport, and Senator's Shuttles are models I bought or found, and only edited to make them print better/easier, make bases, etc.. Other bits like the Satellites and Cargo Pods I designed.

The frigate worked out to be about 1/715, about 16.5" long. There's no magic to that number, it's just as big as I could print it on my 6"x6"x6" print bed without carving it up vertically and laterally in addition to horizontally. As-is it was already 5 sections. Seemed like a lot of additional hassle both to print and then align & whole bunch more sections.
