Unhappy

Sanding the ABS print is simple and straightforward. First start with 100 - 200 grit sandpaper to remove stepping lines and then gradually increase up to 600 grit to achieve a smooth finish without sanding lines. Pro Tip: Sand in small circular movements evenly across the surface of the part.

Also consider using the Moles Saturn 1B wraps which real add detail and reduce the amount of painting. See this link: http://www.forums.rocketshoppe.com/...ead.php?t=13716

Also check this site out on sanding recommendations: https://www.fictiv.com/hwg/fabricat...d-printed-parts

Happy build boss!

PS: Still waiting on USPS

After getting on the phone, usps will be delivering my package today, it was no error on the mailing address, it was some type of error on their end, got loaded on the wrong truck and sent to the wrong post office and then sent back to Dist. center and just set over their for a extra day before being sent to my local post office. I guess they normally do a great job handling countless packages. So should have mine today

Mine finally got here. Here is a shot of the parts. One note, the upper space craft section doesn’t fit a bt80. Seems like any picture I take from my ipad comes out sideways, even if I send it to my computer first. Not sure how to correct that?

I received my Saturn 1B today. Looked over everything I'm 99% satisfied with it. There are a few things that aren't right but I can take care of that. The printing is really good and the detail stands out nicely. I have Boyce-Aerospace SA-5, SA-7 and now there Saturn 1B. I like these kits and glad to have them available.

With all three rockets, I have enough building, sanding, and painting to keep me busy.

That's how I feel about the SA-5. I've always really liked the way the Saturn looked but never got around to building one from scratch. The Boyce kit looks good.

Here is a very good Youtube video on finishing 3D printed parts recommended by Boyce Aerospace.
