Default Build Thread: Estes Saturn V #1969

I've opened and inventoried the contents of this exciting kit. I've assembled the (5) faux engine bells that "The Vixen" will paint by hand. I've also joined the halves of the (4) molded styrene fins and welded then internally with Tenax7r.

The hollow construction the fins begs me to "post mount" them to the airframe--much like I did with the 1:45 scale Little Joe II. Instead of rods cut from bamboo chopsticks like I did with the LJII, I'll cut the rods from bamboo grilling skewers.

Here we go!
