i am a student recreating the first shuttle launch in 3ds max(3.1 and 4) can i do it with max alone or should i get combustion as well? i am concerned about the smoke plumes the most. if anybody has done a shuttle launch or knows someone who has please reply.

I'd think you could do it in Max alone so long as there wasn't anything else you'd want to composite into the shot.
For the plume I would look into the Afterburn plugin as it does great clouds and smoke. If you want to avoid purchasing any more plugins, try ScriptSpot.com
Also, for the background sky during the launch I'd suggest Afterworks' Dreamscape (http://www.afterworks.com)
