Default WTB Cox Saturn V and Cox Saturn 1b

Looking for a Cox Saturn V and a Cox Saturn 1b. The Saturn V was my first rocket and the Saturn 1b was my brothers first rocket both purchased at a Target of all places back in the early 70's. The nostalgia bug has bit me.

There is an opened original Cox Saturn 1b listed here that looks to be in pretty nice condition:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/2259713066...ABk9SR6TK3ZynYw

This is not my listing, nor do I know the seller.

Kind regards,

My opinion on Cox RTF rockets is very dim, but I can understand your reasoning for wanting to locate these.
They made some of the best 18mm SU BP 18mm engines; the D8-3 and D8-0.
Wish we could still get those.

I dont know if you ever found your Saturns, but they do show up on Ebay, but you may have to be vigilant and modify your search some. Here are 2 that sold this week, I found them looking in the completed listings 1 searching for Saturn Rocket

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2046474351...ABk9SR4zu37iyYw

and the other searching for cox saturn

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2763274104...ABk9SR7rZ57iyYw


so you may need to mix up your search some. Good Luck! and Happy Hunting!
