Maybe dimensions are OK, but your floor numbers are wrong.

This will be my first post in this forum..I love to play with photoshop
and I found a recent real life pic. of BD
(who ever took it, forgive me for modifying your picture)
That real life picture fits one of the renders ...
This is what i came out with:

pic # 1 is the real one
pic # 2 is the render
Pic # 3 the real pictuer with modification of the wings to reach the
indecated level on pic 1 + the render on top off it,, and i think it came
perfectly
pic # 4 for ppl who say BD will be more than 800 m,(i doupt it) now
its 440 and 800 is allmost double the recent hight
(when playing around with the render as you see,, IT DOES NOT FIT THE REAL LIFE PIC)

The bottom of the different versions are all the same. We have not yet reached the point where they start diverging, though we are getting close. We will soon have a better idea of what they decided to build (though some people will believe what they will regardless).

Sort of, though my house never seems to be completely clean. I decided not to post my spiel as Beyond1000 apologized to me removing some of my anger, and the thread started getting back to normal and I didn't want to cause another big uproar. If you want a copy of my findings privately, PM me and I'll explain everything.
