With thanks to Tim Van Milligan. If you have the time, then assuredly this is worth the expenditure.

Is that the 1/70th scale?

I have one up in my closet . . . a Saturn 1b too.

First I'm going to finally tackle my Estes Saturn 1b. 36 years is long enough . . .

Also, I'm not sure where I'd store the assembled Saturn V. That thing is huge!

That is the Apogee 1/70th. I have yet to even get my hands on the long lamented SHR Saturn V at 1/48 - that is 7.5 feet! I am not sure that I would even take on the Sirius at 1/64th. Having reached this point in building the Saturn V , I am becoming more inclined to go after their Saturn 1b.

I agree! I've built two of the Apogee Saturn Vs.
Some steps on the Apogee Saturn were easier than the Estes Saturn.
The DVD video instructions are a big plus on that complicated of a build.
On the DVD, Tim explains a great way to paint the black patterns over the corrugations. It takes a little time to do but is much better than trying to mask it. His method works very well.

I like the size comparison shot of the Redstone next to the Saturn V.

Wow, that is impressive! Can't wait to see a photo of it fully painted and decal'd. Beautiful work!

The details on the wraps are spot on. Once you settle in to stretching them into place it is a relatively predictable task. The only resin parts are the OMS pods, fins, and ullage motors.

There are no "OMS" pods on a Saturn V... There are Auxiliary Propulsion Units on the S-IVB...

Orbital Manuevering System (OMS) was a shuttle system, roughly analgous to the "Service Propulsion System" (SPS) on Apollo...
