You cant get closest 2 the ships than 4 see a poor details nor read anything on it's surfaces ect ect and it's very disgusting at least for me : (( ...hope some can tell me if is possible 2 reach such thing even have stoped to use orbitter 4 else than two years due 2 this : (((( .
sorry to suggest lua again, but for this small things I think it is ideal. If it's just to have a look and not for a persistant mode you can set manually the size of the object.
open the lua console and type
original_size = v:get_size()
Do not close the window, look around as much as you want and then type again:
this should work, but remember is just a patch for having a look. size could have impact on vessel behaviour so if you downsize your simulation may go off and not work properly
