Default 2001 Discovery I need your imput

With the wonderful build up done by saturnapollo of the 2001 Discovery build up many new observations have come to light. With these new observations I am trying to create a revised engine for the Discovery (This is for a larger Discovery). My fist effort seems to be to short and I wanted to start a discussion with you folks to help me build a better engine nozzle.

This is a picture of my nozzle as it is today.

This is a picture of the 11 ft Discovery.

Using this picture I scale my nozzle to match.

Then I chopped up my nozzle to match the appropriate profile.


What do you guys see that I may have missed? All of your input would be very helpful. Thanks

It's intended more as a 'getting my thoughts down on paper' sort of drawing rather than an accurate blueprint, but I thought you might find it useful. One thing to note on there are the fins around the outside of the engine shrouds - something most of the replicas seem to miss - but quite noticable in the shots from the movie (well, they seem noticable to me, anyway!....)
