United Launch Alliance Atlas V 400

Hello all, in addition to the Onondaga project, I am also working on a 1/144 Atlas V 400 rocket. I am designing it to represent the LRO/LCROSS launch vehicle. I am also working on a 1/48 Centaur upper stage. I may also do the whole rocket in 1/48, but it will be big! More than three feet tall. Anyways, continuing on, the 1/144 version is well under way, getting close to being ready for unfolding. As usual I am designing and texturing in Sketchup. I had a heck of a time figuring out the number of ridges on the payload fairing. I finally just counted and came up with 48. Please don't knock me if it's actually 50. : Figuring out the arrangment of the engine nozzels was also tricky, but I finally got it all sorted out.
