A rocketeer could make a right nice 1/100 Saturn 1b with a few tubes and these parts.

I use to have the Estes 1/100 Saturn 1B but sold it a few years ago on ebay. It was a completed kit, ready to fly. Only had one flight on it which was a great one with no problems.

I have the Boyce one now just mentioned with the old style Apollo capsule, which is best for flight. Like was mentioned, that kit is very nice, just add a few tubes.

I also have the above parts to build a lighter version closer to Estes, Centuri design.

I'm also gathering parts for a 1/45 scale Saturn 1B.

The pics above will require more tubes and will be a lighter version.

Im also waiting on the Estes possible release one to.

Love those 1bs
