I have built this in the last year, here are some views of my Launch site in 1/76/72 scale.
The site measures approx. 4 ft. x 4 ft.

Looks excellent
First time ever that I have seen such a diorama of the mystical THOR site . . . .

Have all the personnel deserted ?

Maybe they have lit the blue touch paper and have retired to a safe distance?🙃
I knew the truck didn´t want to hit me....it had Dodge written on the front!

I've never seen the launch site before, but I have seen the missile. That is genuinely impressive (and the moving shelter over an elevating launcher idea is still in use).

Yes, it is the BW Thor, I used the Belcher Bits one on my BW Leyland Hippo and erector trailer.
