How To Print This Multi-Part Rocket Model?

The Issue

I have downloaded and tried to slice the files in this zip archive:

Vulcan Centaur Rocket

However, the "VC Booster-Aft.stl" file has some tricky internal structure to print near the engines. I don't know how to best downscale and print this.

In the original non-down-scaled .stl file there is what appears to be a fuel line going from the bulkhead of what will after assembly be the upper tank in the first stage to the engines. This disappears when down-scaled and leaves me with two dome-shaped structures/bulkheads without that fuel line as internal support. I would rather not have to cut the model and have to glue it together afterwards.

Requested Result/Output

If anyone can help me slice it for my Prusa Mini+ and reply with a zipped folder containing the .gcode files and the down-scaled .stl files I would very much appreciate it. Preferably with as low a layer height as possible where possible for detail preservation (In my attempts I've used variable layer height in varying combos).

I've tried several ways on my own before writing this but need help because I can't find a solution and really wan't a larger format rocket model to print out as a decorative piece.

Helpful answers are appreciated. I usually respond to Tweets directed at me.OS: Raspberry Pi OS & Windows 10. Programming Languages: Python & Java...
