Green Eggs

Saturn V and Skylab, one kit with both upper stages



All in all, a wonderful display


The Space X model comes as a bit of a surprise - I wonder what kind of deal Estes made to use the likeness and graphics? Really great to see it though - will it use the same clear plastic fin unit as the 1/200th Saturn V?

OK, I might have been wrong about the Upscale MAV being a table. I thought someone at work said it was going to replace the Large Alpha III which is a table fro trade shows, so I assumed the MAV was gong to be a table as well. From the images of the MAV on Face Book, it doesn't appear to be a table.

OK...it's done. It is an upscale MAV....and no, it's not a flying model. As some of you know, I used to be a senior designer for Estes, and this is for them to use at trade shows. I know that will be a disappointment to many. Here are some pictures of early progress, CAD screen captures, and the completed 'show' model.

That would explain (maybe) why the SpaceX Falcon 9 models have not been available from SpaceX for a bit....

Some of that stuff, of course, is out. I've been flying a Green Eggs, a Tazz and a MAV for a bit (perhaps I should bring them to the WAC launch tomorrow). Several of the others are currently available.

Back in the day I built a bunch of Saturn V's for demos we did (hundreds of demos). Once it became battered by flight I modified to a Skylab version with a BT-70. People really appreciated the tip of the hat to Skylab. This is a most welcome product release.

Actually, this is Dave's answer about it being a table, taken from the Estes Model Rockets group on FB.

Jim Parsons (K'Tesh) asked this question, "I've read that this is for a table... So I'm presuming that it separates and glass is put between the two segments... It that's correct, are you going to use rare earth magnets to help align the upper section to the lower?"

Dave Meyers replied, "Not sure where you heard that...it's false news 😉. However, I am building a special table for Estes to be used at trade shows, as well....so maybe something got lost in translation...."

Glad I didn't purchase the last Saturn V.
Definitely getting this one.
I wish they would kit that giant Saturn 1B they used to display.

Agreed, bring back the D11-9. I loved that motor back in the days (used it on my Goblin often).

The D11-9 had about 3-4 less n-sec total impulse than the D12 to accomodate the longer delay.
It often was just right to be able to get a Cherokee-D, Skybolt, or Goblin actually back.
