Here is what the project looks like, now. I have done and redone the launch pad's base several times as I was unearthing new and more accurate data. By the way, the two bunkers (more to come) have to be partially rebuilt, too.
By the way, what the two giant towers (600 ft high!) are supporting are actually lightning rods. As there seem to be frequent thunderstorms at Baikonur, one can imagine that at times it was essential to have the rocket protected from lightning!
