And here it is, my drawing of all five Babylon stations. At this point, I must note that I did get many of the parts to draw Babylon 4 (and some of the other stations) from CanisD's version of Babylon 6 over at photobucket. I also got the base for Babylon 5 from his drawing of a "battle Babylon 5".
And yes, I did make Babylon 5 the smallest on purpose. After all, think of how much money and resources were spent on building the other four (even if they weren't all finished). Then consider that Babylon 5 was only built after other races decided to contribute. I don't know about you, but after the history of the station, I'd cut down quite a bit too.

I understand B1-B3 are made up, but B4 is known and is also labeled as the largest of all 5, shouldn't that be reflected on the scales? Here it looks to be the second smallest.

Yes I realized that as I put this together.  However, there are a few things to consider.  One of them is that Babylon 3 is pushed further forward than the others, and therefore only looks longer than Babylon 4.  The other is that the central section of B4 is still larger than 1-3.  Also, most of the additional length is due to the larger reactor cores.

Babylon 4 was also built by recycling the scrap from the previous three stations after they blew up.
When it vanished into the ether, it took what little support for the Babylon Project with it.
The only reason Babylon 5 was built was because the Minbari footed so much of the bill.
And the only reason they did it was so they could force the EA to put Sinclair in charge of it.
