Here's some Shapeways prints (Jarak's Ship, 3 Sidon Ships, pack with Ultra Probe, 9 Eagle variants and a Swift with an MPC Eagle for comparison):

So, discerning spaceship size can be daunting and inconsistent. Here, Jarak's ship seems to be about right based on these quotes from the Episode "Alpha Child":
  • "100m in diameter"
    "40m high"
    "very low density"
    "could hold an army"
And this Alpha comparisons:

And these Eagle comparisons:

My first thought on the Sidon ship (which the Shapeways modeler incorrectly calls Psychon, another type of ship) is that it was small, about the size of the Hawk. But the neck would be too small for anyone to travel to the front of the ship. Combine that with its apparent much larger size in the graveyard in "Dragon's Domain" and the warships intended purpose of seeking vengeance from the millions of deaths caused by the Queller drive on Voyager One in "Voyager's Return". So this print of ~100m seems like it could be a feasible size for the ship.
