Now I've started making stuff from minecraft mods. To start of I have made a nuclear missile from the ICBM mod, which some of you may know from Voltz.

First of all, since I'm still trying to get some good lighting and trying out my editing skills, alot of the pictures might have different light-levels. And some of the pictures are quite blurred.
This Nuclear missile took me about 4 days to build, its about 104studs / 80cm / 31,5inches tall, it weighs 2,75kg / 6,06pounds. This model drained my resouces of blue bricks and plates, so if you were hoping to see a tier 3 launcher platform I'll have to dissapoint you. After i finished building the model i found out that it is a bit to tall, but i was to lazy to want to find out were it went wrong.
The whole missile(it's was quite hard to find a
background which could fit the whole model):

the missile standing on my desk:
Comparing the sizes:
I have built the creeper which the technicpack uses in its drawings:
The tier 1 launcher platform. this was just a quickbuild, so it is not all that good, but it is able to hold the missile without breaking. The top 16x16 plate is only supported by two small pillars and it is being locked in place on the two big blocks.
Here you can see the small pillar. because of some different heights, the piller is not connected to the big block.
And here you see the missile standing on the 16x16 plate.
Note that the plate almost doesn't bend downwards.
