Examining the BepiColombo stack in ESA's test centre. The people give a sense of the scale of the full spacecraft stack, which is more than 6 m high.

The Mercury Transfer Module is at the bottom, the Mercury Planetary Orbiter is in the middle, and the Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter's Sunshield and Interface Structure is the cone shape seen at the top (the Mercury Magnetospheric Orbiter sits inside during the cruise to Mercury).
