It was a pretty good recreation, but by no means perfect, as this debate illustrates.
But an outstanding accomplishment I must add, thanks for the clarification.

What kind of reference materials did you use for the CGI rendering?
Your "fueling station" nozzles look pretty much like the real thing in these rare black & white photos of the original miniature.

And Alchemist said he had a high resolution camera negative scan suggesting the text above the nozzles to be "fueling station". How did you figure this one out?

I'm also relieved that Mr. Datin is no longer under suspicion for "misremembering" or senility. I'd say the quest to find original photpgraphs with the original text signs goes on.
