I'm waiting for the Saturn 1B and Skylab Saturn V to show up on AC Supply.
I'm not paying anywhere near retail on those.

You and me both brother.
BTW you do know that the 1B is 1/100, not the 1/70 re-issue?

Right.
I know it's another re-issue of the 1/100 originally produced by Centuri.
I have plenty of the Semroc re-issues of the Estes 1/70 S1B.
I doubt we will ever see Estes re-issue the 1/70.
If I buy another 1/70 Saturn 1B it will be the super-scale $250+ Apogee one.

They're there, they just aren't in stock yet. SLS is there too.
You can put them in your shopping cart, but then it gives you an error when you try to check out (guess how I know )

Looks like the Saturn 1b and Saturn V are shipping on the Estes website. Not sure about AC Supply yet.

Earl

Edit AC Supply still showing out of stock.
