I arrived at the same conclusion (that the Dom should be much bigger than
the GP-02A) using the same footage for reference. The Dom did not look all
that big if you watch the fateful encounter between Amuro and the Black
Tri-Stars (this being a better translation of "Black Trinary", thank goodness
Bandai/Sunrise didn't go with it). However, when they pulled the Jet Stream
Attack on Amuro, you can see that the Dom is at least big enough to allow the
Gundam step on its back without being crushed or pushed to the ground.
