The cargo hold & drone bay

While looking at the ships in EVE Online, I always wondered if the numbers they give regarding cargo hold and drone bay actually makes sense. Hence I decided to make models of the hold and bay.
In the left image, you have the pod, Bob, in the lower left corner a 5*1 cube meter box and the 3 other cubes for the cargo hold. The 5*1 box represent the drone bay space, equivalent to 1 small drone, of 5 cube meters.

The cargo hold of the Tristan is of 140 cube meter. To get the accurate size, I made one 5*5*5 cube, one 2*2*2 cube and another 2*2*2 cube minus a 1 cube meter. This totals, 125 + 8 + 7, 140 cube meter.
In the right image, you have the same layout as the image above, but with the hull of the ship in comparison.

My conclusion is that the cargo hold and drone bay of the Tristan is of acceptable in size.
