The modeling was done in 3ds Max and this took up to 80 hours for each rocket, which doesn't include rendering, which was done in Maxwell for the color and diffuse passes, and PSOFT Pencil+ to make everything more illustrative looking. I used five lighting passes and composited them in After Effects.

Its interesting to note that the most popular launch vehicle, the Soyuz is quite a bit smaller than the Ariane, and dwarfed by the Delta IV.
