Don't know if these help but here's some links.

That stinks. I feel for you. Nature doesn't.

Thank you Finis, this helped me a lot and whoed that I'm going almost in the right way, I won't do a totally scientific based animation (plan to do when finish it), but will use this to gain enough experience to then can do a so loyal to reality that NASA will say that I'm spying they, :mrgreen: and then will be much more easy in the second time.

I'll post the story board soon as I can, and I'll work tomorrow on the rocket. But I'm really glad that I planned something closer to the reality even unknowing how to do, however I think that is easy to plan those things. I gotta start the animation process until 18th january, if I don't I'll not complete it until the deadline, so I have more 10 days to model and I'll work like crazy!!!

Thanks very Much!

Another good thing is that I can use good part of that rocket to do another Aries Models! Will start the landing pad now, I've been preparing the Rocket for closes, so here is more to images.

I finished the upper part of the launch pad, I still need to do the ground of launch pad and upgrade a little it, I also need to finish the upper part of the rocket (What I'll do next when I finish the launch pad, due that I'll try to do at least a launch scene.

good one. you could do a decor on the rocket with letters and brazilian flag. :)
Maybe REGISTAR ONE - BRAZIl SPACE some thing like this. create a logo for a fictiv company. That kind of thing that make more realism. Or put the logo of NASA, EUROSPACE, RUSSIA and JAPAN together to create a world project.
You can add some pipes from the tower to the rocket. The tower need to have some thing differents in each floor (pipe, machine,etc...). Add a very low polygon character to show the scale. don't forget to move it before the star of the rocket. :D

Thanks Marcel , I thought nobody were following the WIP due to the new Artists Folder (What is one more barrier to my WIPs.

I'm going to put the UN symbol and NASA symbol, my first thought was launch two or more rockets, since there is a lot of kilometers between Earth and Mars, I did the Ares IV Rocket (That one) and if I see I have enough time I would do the Angara Family (Russian Rockets) and if this haven't a deadline, probably an European Rocket. But for the contest will be just this rocket launch.

I'm sick, ie, stop working with TS... I get sick yesterday and tried to hidden it from my parents (to then I can work even sick) but now I'm feeling really bad and can't do it by myself also I want to win the sick benefits (Everybody help me). I'll go to bed now.

Soyuz is a good rocket but this is the present version of Russian Rocket family, as this will be in a near future I need to look forward to new projects (as Ares and Angara).

Ok now I'll tell my parents I'm sick.
