Default 1/64 Saturn is already available

David Miller at Sirius makes a 1:64 scale Saturn V (it's quite a beauty!):

Thanks for the scale tube sizes for the other launchers --- now I can build a fleet to match the Saturn V.

MarkB, Do you have a list of all the sizes needed to make up a Saturn 1B? I would be interested in knowing all the tube sizes. I can't find a ST-16 tubes. Help on this one.

My box says 1/77th. Kinda weird, liked they scaled it to fit the boxes their other kits came in or something. . .

Mole,

The tubes in the ST series are from Semroc and correspond to the Centuri tube designations. Last time I checked, ST-10 , ST -16, ST-18 and ST-20 are still available from that company as is a Soyuz nose cone. Totally Tubular sold most of these size tubes as well but I've lost track of that company.

I've built Vostok, Soyuz and Shenzhou in this scale. I was going to pester Sandman for Voskhod and Dragon nose cones later this spring. I have just started doing the math on a Saturn 1B (and possibly a Dyna-Soar Saturn 1) and I know those are the tubes but I haven't worked out the lengths yet. The tricky one is the Apollo Service module with a 2.4 inch 1/64th diameter.

I forgot about the Sirius Saturn V. I wonder if he'd sell just the S-IVb and the spacecraft section, then all you'd need would be the booster which should be relatively easy. He makes good stuff, I use his replacement Apollo Capsule on my Centuri 1/100 scale Apollo rockets.

Let me work on it a bit . . . .

I was noticing George Gassaway's Saturn 1B drawings are 1/66 scale and they have all the dimensions written on them.

http://georgesrockets.com/AOL/GCGas...urn_IB_drwg.GIF

I think George comes to this site every once in while. His scale is based on the S-IVB stage being BT-101 at 3.939". At this size, the difference between 1/64 and 1/66 scale is a matter of thousandths; at 1/64 scale, the S-IVB would be 4.0625".

Or, take the 70" tanks; at 1/66 they're 1.06" and at 1/64 they're 1.09". An ST-10 tube is 1.04"

Unless you're building up the tubes, it looks like 1/66 scale is best for the Saturn and close enough to stand next to a 1/64 Soyuz or Shenzhou.

I just wanted to thank you MOLE very much for these wraps. They look completely awesome, I used the lem shroud and service module wraps for both my 2157 s5 and my 2048 s1b . I absolutely love them, and again I just wanted to thank you for all the work you did.

Scott_mills, No thanks is needed. I thank you for your kind words. Glad they worked out well for you. I wish ESTES would release the 1/100 Saturn 1B again . I'll keep my fingers crossed for that to happen.
