In this movie, we'll finish off the rocket…by creating this jet stream,…I guess it's known as an exhaust plume,…that's coming off the bottom of the rocket,…and we'll also draw in both of the two wings.…I'll go ahead and switch over…to my document in progress here,…and I'll zoom out a little bit, as well.…Then I'll go ahead and scroll up…and select the Rectangle Tool once again.…This is the easy part, by the way.…And you just wanna go ahead and alt click,…or option click, at the intersection…of the bottom of this square guide…and the vertical center guide…in order to bring up the Rectangle dialog box.…
And go ahead and set the width…of this rectangle to 80 points…and set the height to 240 points,…and click okay, at which point you'll end up…with this rectangle smack dab in the center of the rocket.…And to confirm, go ahead and click on the word Transform…up here in the control panel,…select the center reference point there,…and you should see an X value of 482 points…and a Y value of 400 point,…at which point, go ahead and press the Enter key,…
