I did not realize the Centuri 1B was Apollo 7. Does anyone have the service model silver wrap?


Thanks, Carl. You might want to get with Leroy Piester about the Centuri Saturn 1-B's
development; he could give some insight on the model's silver wrap. My model (even though it's about 37 years old) still has the wrap on. I'm planning on using the silver/
chrome monokote adhesive from BMS to help in the detailing of the SM finish. Shouldn't
be all that hard to do. I used the monokote to enhance the detailing of the SM to the
Estes K-36 Saturn - V I built recently.

Carl,

My 1B is the Centuri 1/100 sold as EST #2048. I opened the box and took everything out, but it appears the silver for the SM is simply paint in this kit. The instuctions don't show a wrap for that. And I didn't see one anywhere in the parts.

The Estes version of the Centuri Saturn 1-B was simply painted silver (see the pic below of
the Estes model taken at the Makers Faire last October). When I get the chance over the
next couple of days, I may be able to make a rough trace of the silver wrap on my Centuri
model (in 1/100 scale, of course). I also have the Centuri Saturn - V, and I think I still have
what's left of the peel off piece from which the silver wrap came from (but it's different than
the 1-B's pattern).

Roy, have you had a chance to upload the data yet?

had some trouble with configuring the FTP server, but Chan now has the correct information and when he gets a chance to upload it, it will be available at http://www.soarrocketry.org/saturn/<filename>

That's what I planned on doing as well but it looks like you have to be careful with the orientation that way. I had the 1/100 1B and I think the decals for the black tanks already had the white background because I just don't remember masking it off. Oh well. :o

Since these aren't flying I'm taking the easy way and installing the single motor mount. Everyone doing the built up fins? I don't want to be different. :D

That's my plan. Going to start working on them tonight. I don't think I got the cluster option parts unless they're still in the popcorn packing.

Here is the wrap for the Centuri Saturn V. I have a scan if anyone wants it but it's too big to post to this board.

I also have a scan of the 1b here somewhere, just if I could find it. I was once told (by someone who should know) that the 1b wrap "wasn't very accurate" so I never drew it up. I don't know if that is true or not.

You are correct, the Estes kit did not have a white rectangle behind the letters. That was just making it needlessly difficult IMHO.

OK, I don't have the Saturn 1b wrap. I remember now, the guy who had one said he'd send it to me, but that was about 10 years ago and it never happened. He kept telling me to use the pattern in ROTW as it was much more accurate. That however, would be hard to translate into a wrap due to the thin horizontal sections.

BUT, now that Rustee found one in a hobby shop it shouldn't be a problem. I asked him to scan all the stuff. I hope he does.
