50 years ago on July 20 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon. Please find some pictures of my Dragon 1/72 Saturn V model I built a few years ago and it won a Bronze medal at the 2015 ScaleModelWorld competition. The kit was largely made OOB but some small changes were made: All stringer ends cut back and chamfered off LSA top section added to improve the fit between the LSA and the Service Module Gold and brass foil fitted the the Lunar Module Contact probes added to 3 of the Lunar Module landing pads Retro rockets fitted to the top of Stage 3 Separation rockets exhausts opened out on Stage 2 Umbilical interface between Stage 1 and Interstage New Ware decals used A large number of sink marks were filled in at all stages. Painting was done by airbrush as my first attempt with a spray can resulted in lots of paint runs. Now, on to the pictures. Work in progress: Complete for the first time on the kitchen table On the competition table at Telford, nothing got broken on the flight over BPC, Command Module and Service Module Lunar Module Stage 1 and 1/72 Airfix Concorde for scale comparison All together now
Hello all... Im posting my recent build of Dragons 1/72 He.219-A0. I built this down in the “Specialists” group build. Im hoping you like it. You will note it needs a tail prop to stand up properly. I found out too late that no matter how much weight. I just couldn't get it to stand on all three feet. A link to the WIP If any are curious. Questions, comments, jokes, our good stories ? Dennis
