(from wookiepedia)This image is 19,25 cm in height and wookiepedia stats the lenght of the yt-1930 at 35 mSo for a 1,5 m square you have to make a grid of 2,7 cm per facet

The pen is mightier than the character builder.
Copy this to your sig if you like 4e but don't use the CB.
Because I am trying to get the grid to the right scale. your way is imprecise and difficult to get it right.
I think you're going about it the wrong way. Don't scale the grid. Scale the ship. Make a grid that is the correct number of meters long/wide. Someone else stated what the official liength of the ship is, use that. Put your ship pic into the same image as a new layer, then scale it to match the number of grid squares it's supposed to be. This keeps the grid nice and clean. Use a high enough resolution image of the ship, and it won't really make a difference when you scale it to fit the grid. I personally use a silly freeware program called 'Interactive Dungeon' which has a grid when you open it. I then scrfeen capture the screen and copy it into a new photoshop file, crop it to the size I want, and that's it.
Because I am trying to get the grid to the right scale. your way is imprecise and difficult to get it right.well, ain't that the truth now...difficulttoo hard to think thru the process of making the squares on the image print out at one inch size?you've already measured the image...one inch (2.5cm) = 1.5 meters (or 2 meters if using non-SAGA)1. divide image into 4 or 6 or 8 pieces2. make a test print of one of those.3. measure the size of a square.4. increase or decrease size of image so that the square prints at one inch size. (hint; use %)
I know what layers and brushes are. But you keep leaving out the important part. How do I get a grid that is the right size.
make your math to create a squared brush with the right facet (or resize the one downloaded from armoredgears7's files)

When you create a new brush you can decide, of course, its dimensions: make a squared brush of the right size and, voilà, you can fill a new layer over your ship with the right grid!
I couldn't get it to work your way cause you left out to many details. IE step by step instructions for creating the bushes. Lynns way worked for me.
