The "real life" length of the horizontal tube can now be estimated more easily, if required  there are 10 FP segments and 3 full size segments  13 in all, plus the conical junction to the vertical tube.
If each horizontal segment is about 4' in length then the overall length of the tube would be 52'
YMMV, of course

Great picture! But eyeballing the full size segments and assuming Shane Johnson got the reproduction correct (he had been visiting the set) I'd get a length of almost 7' for each Hshaped segment which would put the "real life" pretended overall length of the horizontal shaft at 87' or 26.5 meters (assuming, of course, all elements are supposed to have the same length).
