Frank,
Very nice work! The art is great and I'm following the build.
I've always liked the size of the Centuri 1/100 scale 1B.
Your printed version is now on my gotta' build list.
A two engine cluster should suit it fine.

The last major part of the build is the Saturn 1B reduction wrap.
I printed the reduction wrap on 110 card stock, and let the ink dry, then sprayed a clear coat to protect it.
I cut the reduction wrap out and formed it into a cone shape. When I was satisfied with the reduction shape I glued the connection tab in place on the inside of the reduction wrap seam. I gave the glue tab time to set up. With the glue tab dry, I placed some more glue on the exposed tab and butted the reduction ends together.
I pressed the seam, and let the glue dry.

I printed the service module, cut and applied it to the top of the service module body tube.
I took the reduction wrap and slipped it over the top of the tube and down to the bottom of the tube coupler.
When I was pleased with the fit of the reduction wrap, I glued it to the bottom of the coupler.

This completes all my Saturn 1B wraps. I found that at the end I had to do very little painting. What painting I did do, I was able to do with a paint brush or magic marker.
This project took me about a week to complete. The nice thing about the wraps is, if you mess up, you just print a new wrap and start over again. I will send the wrap file to Scott, and he will post them here shortly for your personal use.
Thanks for all your support, and I hope that you have as much fun as I did.
Frank

Great thread Mr. Mole, and many thanks for making the wraps available.
Question: What setting (paper type) do you use on your printer for the Avery labels?

I use Avery 8.5 X 11 in. inkjet shipping labels, such as #48165. From my HP print screen, I select Actual size. Then go to Properties and choose Presentation Printing in first column and Best for print quality in second column. I have attached screen capture images that may help clarify.

What the world needs is a series of 1/50 Saturns.

OK, 1/50 or 1/48 sounds good. I could work on those wraps next winter.
Anyone got the tube sizes, and where to get them?

The wraps are a neat idea, but I'd make a pitch for 1/64 scale Saturns.

Why? Well, its a convenient scale for other manned launchers and there's something to be said for a uniform scale presentation. R-7 (BT-55 core) and Shenzhou (ST-20) are easy 24mm-powered in this scale. A Space X Falcon would be BT-70H. Titan and Atlas are ST-18 and Redstone is ST-10.

A Saturn 1b would be ST-10 tubes around an ST-16 core with a BT-101 S-IVb.

Admittedly, a Saturn V is a monstrous 6.185" in diameter at this scale . I'm not a High-Power guy but it would seem doable at this size.

And if you really wanted to go nuts, I seem to recall the old Guillow's Space Shuttle was approximately 1/64 scale but I haven't dug mine out to check.

So what do you think?
