That is easy. Just wrap 1/4" wide masking tape (aka quilting tape at Michael's, Hobby Lobby or JoAnn) tightly around the nozzle end of the motor until it is about the outside diameter of your motor tube.

The SV box has a "contains lead" warning (I'll be sure NOT to eat or drink the rocket,) but where's the lead?

Probably in the ink on the box?

But, only eat the box if you have milk and some strawberries to go with it.

My guess is that it is either in the parachute ink or the decal ink (or both).

BTW, my Saturn V came today! WooHoo!

I liked the retro pic of Mr. Estes on the side.

Hmmm. Think I want to go with a 29mm upgrade and reinforce the inside of the external tubes with carbon fiber. I would need to cut my own CR's since the ID will change. But if it all works out, it should hold up to minor abuse better than the stock configuration.

The Centuri Saturn V had a ST-16 tube host to accept 3x18mm. That's the way to go. You could interchange 3x18mm, 24mm, 29mm or even coffee can 38mm.
