According to my personal experience, when it comes to object sizes, 
anything from 0.000075 to 10,000,000 is rendered correctly. Distances, 
however, are a different issue - for example, if you model the Solar 
System at a scale of 1 unit = 1 km, most likely the Sun would not be 
visible from Earth...

See you in Khyberspace!
