Will the "turning light" be placed behind the "windows" of the beacon?

I'd like to touch the very tip of that thing before it goes into place just for the sake of it.

So will the beacon work as some sort of lighthouse?

Yes. Unfortunately, there's no videos to see how it would exactly look.

Yeah soon as PA and Durst pays them off, then agagin, who knows now though with the look of the beacon, that is quite damn cool looking, I was hoping against the final measurement, but if that rocket looking beacon goes on top, maybe a whole different story,,, But be4 I get ahead of myself that is the top piece right?

I might set up the first render of the beacon enclosure, mirror assembly, and lights in the next week. It gets better, I'm going to try to render it with lighting so it will look much more realistic than anything I've posted before. The catch, I can only export in 500X500 size. I'll attempt to work around this by rendering in a grid from a single point with a reduced angle of view and then stitch it together.
Test render:

I'll add a weak blurred reflection to the metal enclosure to better replicate the image from the shop.
