He should ditch the black side booster nosecones, though. Don't think they will ever be white. It seems he made them black because he thought it looked cool next to the black center booster interstage.

Yes, you first need to register for free to have an account on the LEGO website. Go to FH page on https://ideas.lego.com/, link at start of this thread, then submit a vote. You’ll be asked a couple of questions about who you think the model would appeal to, what you think is a realistic price etc and then your vote is added.

I assume you mean they will stay white? If so I agree... I also expect the nose cones to be white.

The latest project update has improved the fairing, particularly making the bottom more rounded.

Wow I've been a way since posting this a few months ago. Thanks for keeping the topic alive! khehmeyer has certainly been busy! Awesome upgrades with the Block 5! Its admirable that he's inspiring his students too. Thought I'd post the link for the updates section for easy access. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/1d1b481c-e8b4-4dda-99f3-ec6243139099/updates

Ah, yes, of course I meant that they will stay white.

That was quick getting to almost ten thousand!

This is now the LEGO ideas project with the most votes (9,433) of those yet to reach 10,000.

At current rate of progress may hit 10,000 within a week! As another batch of ideas projects entered review at the beginning of this month, FH wouldn’t enter review until this Fall, so probably Q1 2019 before we’d know the outcome.

it's positive news though. I'd get many copies, for sure.

People may also like to support: SpaceX the Ultimate Collection

https://ideas.lego.com/projects/7457e3ff-0397-42e1-b37d-fc54c3c651ad

This also includes a FH and Dragon etc. It started just over a month ago and already has 6,400 supporters!

So looking very likely to have two similar SpaceX submissions in the same LEGO ideas review period :)

That might end badly, we will see.

Really had a surge of supports today, now less than 150 supports away, I would say it will achieve 10k by tomorrow!

EDIT: Now less than 100 to go!

Bingo! 10,000  :D

I’m optimistic about this, I think a good chance LEGO will approve it and I wouldn’t expect any issues with SpaceX.

SpaceX the Ultimate Collection has now also reached 10,000 votes in just 51 days! I think a record?

So all three projects currently on 10,000 and not in review are space ones (the third being the ISS model).
