For building the space shuttle launch pad, I made use of photographs found in various books related to the history of manned spaceflight. Since Launch Pad 39A was primarily used for the Apollo flights to the Moon, photographs of the launch taken during this era were also very useful.

Here I have reproduced an arial photograph of the Launch Pad found in the book "the illustrated hustory of NASA, anniversary edition" by Robin Kerrod (Prion ed.). I bought this book a few years ago almost exclusively for this photograph which was very helpful to me.
