SpaceX Falcon 9 (Saturn V Scale)
Block V, re-scaled and re-detailed!On
When I first launched this project I received many comments about the incorrect proportions at the 1:110 scale. I had done this intentionally to build a model that would display well with the Saturn V set but many SpaceX fans made it clear that they would prefer a proportionally correct model. With the upcoming first launch of the Block V booster, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to try a new scale! Working with my initial width as a starting point I came to a new scale of 1:84. This new scale gave interesting opportunities to address and fix some detial issues that I had with my initial scale. Including a re-work of the fairings, Merlin 1D vacuum and a complete re-design of the Octoweb. This update also includes the recently completed Dragon capsule! I would love to hear all of your thoughts and dont forget to support and share!

First off, thank you all for not only supporting my project but also for following and sharing and helping push it this far! As a celebration of hitting 1000 supporters, I thought I would give everyone a sneak peak at the progress that has been made so far on one of my updates. While this is not finished yet, mostly because I am not a fan of releasing renders as finished projects and therefore refuse to call it completed until I actually build it, I do think it will show people the direction that I am looking to take this project. So, have a look and tell me what you think about my Dragon capsule optional payload! First pic is in launch config, second is on orbit config, and third is re-entry! Also, bonus render of Falcon Heavy progress!
