Hi folks!

Here at Forum Orbiter Italia, a new humble project has begun: the "Nova" Heavy Launch Vehicle, a family of rockets intended to totally replace the old Neptune, Jarvis and Quasar launchers, that some seasoned orbinauts could maybe recall.


Nova will start as a classical expendable rocket, with the expectation of a reusable development if we are lucky.

Currently, I'm busy designing the launchpad for the rocket. I'm looking for some technical drawings of the Long March 5 rocket (that has a similar configuration) and its related launchpad, to help me finish the job. Where can I find it? Thanks!

Although not strictly "technical drawings", paper models are usually a quite good reference when it comes to relative dimensions...
Maybe this helps:

Thank you!
I'm particularly interested in the positioning of the launch pad umbilicals...
