beautiful. it looks like a high end special effect - as if an artist decided to create an awesome rocket blast.

Scale! I need something for scale…


The booster is derived from the Space Shuttle boosters and is 1 segment longer. A photo with some familiar scales.


There’s a one-storey building in the back left, but here is a picture with humans.


Many thanks! While impressively large that’s considerably smaller than my brain keep reading the video image as, and I knew that couldn’t be right. Spoiled by science fiction movies, I’m afraid.
