New “Builders Kit” Release…
Saturn 1B 1/100th scale
Introductory Price $70.00 + $12.00 Shipping

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing, Boyce Aerospace Hobbies is launching our new Saturn 1B Builders Kit. This kit is a redesign of our original all plastic 1/100th Saturn 1B and now utilizes modeler-supplied BT-19 paper tubes for the first stage tanks.

The new Saturn 1B Kit includes 27 highly-detailed 3D-printed parts that pair with BT-19 paper tubes (supplied by the modeler) for a unique design that allows for easier, more precise painting. Plus, the Boyce Aerospace Hobbies Saturn 1B kit now includes decals for an even more professional finished model.

The new Saturn 1B kit measures 27 inches long with a fin span of 4.88 inches. Once assembled, this kit weighs 8 ounces without a motor.

What are BT-19 and where do you get them? If is the only part not included in the kit, why not supply them? It's just one tube size. How much space can that take up.

Professional storer of tubes.

100% agree with Jerry on this.
Make the kit complete.

At the least, they need to post the LENGTHS of tube needed, too. Not just the size. That way, if they are not going to offer a complete kit, one can order the tubes and have them cut to proper length by the time the 'short kit' of their's arrives.

If those specs are on their web site, I missed them.

E-Rockets have the tubes, BT19 which are .70" in dia. or you could say the right scale for 1/100 scale Saturn 1B. My Saturn 1 SA5 and SA7 tubes are cut to 201mm and you need 8 at that length. I'll check and post the length later.

The bt50 should be 235mm long.
The BT19 tubes need to be 194mm long, so shorter than the Saturn 1s

Got mine on order:)

Thought mine was going to be here today but the USPS sent it to a near by city office first which makes no sense. Hopefully I get it tomorrow.

Instead of celebrating the anniversary with the issuance of a Saturn 1B, they should celebrate with a Saturn V intro. All they have on their website now is Sat. V upgrade parts for OTHER manufacturer's kits: Estes, Cox.
Even a smaller kit, say the size of an Alway or Estes 1/200 Sat V would be good.

crazy mail system! They sent my package from Greensboro to Rual Hall, then back to Greensboro when they should have sent it to my local post office and not Rual Hall. Not sure if I will get it today or not.

Boyce has put three awesome 1/100 Scale Saturn 1's in our hands, something no one else has ever done!

Here is a list of what they are working on for the Big Shot! 1/100 Saturn V.
1/100th Scale Saturn V Upgrade Parts (motor shrouds with fins, cluster motor mounts, transitions, etc)

I just received my 1B and am impressed with the packing of the parts in the shipping box. I think the idea of selling the kit without tubes is great. This way they dont have to stock more inventory. This company does 3d print models. For anyone that has bought their models, what do you reccomend to sand the printed plastic? The print is a high quality and needs some sanding for a great finish. I can see where some might not sand at all, just assemble and finish.
