This was also around the same time that Sierra Fox Hobbies in Italy came across a load of #2001 Saturn V's and #2048 Saturn 1b's and was blowing them out dirt cheap, even with the shipping cost.

I had stocked up on Saturn's (V's amd 1b's) here hoping to wait awhile and make a killing. Oh well, I won't lose money when I go to sell them but it sure won't be like back then.
