It's about one-ninetieth as tall as The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel)
In other words, 3.920 cubits is 0.0109 times the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel), and the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) is 91.70 times that amount.
(a.k.a. 新加坡摩天观景轮, a.k.a. சிங்கப்பூர் ஃப்ளையர், a.k.a. Pelayang Singapura) (Marina Centre, Singapore)
The Singapore Flyer has a height of 361 cubits. Based on recommendations from Feng Shui masters, the wheel was re-engineered to spin in the opposite direction five months after it began operating.
It's about one-ninety-fifth as tall as The Washington Monument
In other words, 3.920 cubits is 0.010587 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 94.4550 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 370.280 cubits tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction.
It's about one-ninety-fifth as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral
In other words, the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 97.10 times 3.920 cubits.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 381 cubits to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons).

In other words, 3.920 cubits is 0.00974 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 103 times that amount.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 402 cubits tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph).
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge
In other words, the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 127 times 3.920 cubits.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 497 cubits above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months.
It's about 150 times as long as an Aspirin
In other words, the length of an Aspirin is 0.0077 times 3.920 cubits.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)

In other words, the length of The QE2 is 164 times 3.920 cubits.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
The QE2 has a total length of 643 cubits. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 21,000,000,000 cubits, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
