Airfix 1:144 Saturn V (A11170)

Recommended Posts

Recently finished my attempt at the most powerful rocket to launch successfully built by man to date. A model Ive been wanting to make for 47 years. Not perfect but Im one happy bunny.

The intrepid astronauts

The command module(CM)

On the service module(SM) The CM is a bit under scale most likely due the medium the kit is moulded in.

On top of which is the Launch Escape System (LES)

Next to the Lunar Module(LM)

The LM fits in the top part of Stage III

On top of which sits the CM;SM & LES

Stage III sits on top of Stage II

Finally the spacing ring and Stage I

Which in total gives you the mighty Saturn V.

Very nice, I like the way you show the stages of progression.

I need to build one sometime!

Very nicely built Sir.

IIRC the undersized CM is due to the thickness of the LES shroud and the excessive taper of the LM 'hanger' atop Stage 3. A very nice build and the last upward shot works very well.

That is a very, very, VERY nice clean build! Impressive work and it shows you can end up with a first class model from the Airfix kit right out of the box.

Very nice work. It's great to see one of these. I built one back in the '70's and loved it. Tempted to get another now.
