I must admit, there are no legendary forumers here, except Imre. As forumers, we're all just a bunch of grey mediocrities, compared to him!

My god you are right Rahmah

Even 32 multiplied by 30 equals to 960 which is still below 1000. Now I really know what does a 1000m in height mean LOL

Guys, this is actually more complex and can not be sloved with simple pixle calculations in MS paint.The diagrams are isometric and the photos are in perspective (distorted). Projecting one onto the other does not work so easily, although I agree that the structure should be a bit taller than in alsaif's drawing
