This is the one I will be flying come the 50th Anniversary. Finally a good size Saturn V. Not too big and not too small. Hopely it can take a hard landing.

My big question is will the F-1 engines stay connected for flight? I hope so.

I wonder what the price is going to be?

I consider a "good" sized Saturn V the Sirius, Apogee, and Polecat Aerospace kits.
1/100 scale 29mm powered is barely adequate.

If you are NOT FLYING LOW in the left lane, you need to GET THE #$&@ OUT of it !

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL

No, the F1 engines are part of the display stand for when you are not flying the model.

I guess it could be used for a display stand .

A C6-3 would be the only Estes motor that can be used at this time. A 18mm composite D would be real nice.

Just a little bit bigger than the Dr. Zooch ďant scaleĒ (approximately 1/235) of which I have three versions to build so Iím not sure Iím going to be watching and waiting like I did for the Estes #1969 kit but I certainly wonít turn my nose up at a good flying RTF Saturn V if the price is reasonable.
