Internal Dimensions for display case for Caldecraft Endeavour

Can someone let me know the recommended internal dimensions of a display case for the Caldecraft Endeavour 1/64 scale ship? I'm making a wooden glass display case but haven't yet completed the model.

If I remember correctly:  width : 1 inch wider on each side than the width of the main yard and 2 inches beyond the jib and mizzen boom.

So, 2 inches wider than the widest part of the model and 4 inches longer. 

I suspect things are different for miniature scale, but your model is 42% of museum scale in volume and 75% in length and width.

Perhaps 1.5" and 3" would work.

May I recommend a case with a door in the end? I've had to repair too many models (not my own!) that had their tophamper damaged while a case was lowered over the model. It's much easier and safer to slide the model in....
