This model is based upon the Falcon 9 rocket designed by SpaceX. Its objective is to "Provide reliable and safe transport of people and payloads into earth orbit and beyond. It is the world's first orbital class reusable rocket. Reusability allows SpaceX to refly the most expensive parts of the rocket, which in turn drives down the cost of space access."
In the model itself, I offset the engines at a 45 degree angle to achieve more accuracy to the real rocket. The rest of the design was pretty simple. The SpaceX logo towards the bottom of the rocket was designed by myself using a horizontal image and editing it into a vertical format.
The vehicle is composed of 104 pieces total. It has a height of just under 44 bricks (not including the flames) and at its widest point is 6 studs in width.
