Thanks for the detailed build-thread Jeff!

Now that I have a home shop I need to think about building my Estes Saturn V . . . and eventually my Apogee Saturn V.

Jeff-

Nice build, but I know you probably don't want to hear this, but the first stage (SI-C) roll patterns should only go up to the *bottom* of the inter tank wrap (the next wrap up from the very bottom wrap).

There was one Saturn V (the 500-F facilities checkout mockup Saturn V from May, 1966 timeframe) that had the lower roll pattern somewhat like yours, but no flying Saturn V did.

I don't have a typical Saturn V image handy to show, but I'm sure an image could be googled fairly quickly.

I am amazed at your ability to not only build so quickly, but also to be able to photograph AND post updates on your builds as well. I just can't manage the time to hardly do a build much less all the other along with it. You must teach us all some 'project management' secrets!

OMG!! I can't believe I screwed that up--but I most certainly did! Thanks for bringing it to my attention. I think I can correct it--if I can shoot primer over dull coat. If I can't, then this SV will have to fly!

How do I have so much time? Easy! I'm injured AND unemployed.......but that's about to change: I get released by the doctor next week AND start my new job!

I mentioned this in post #100 the same day JJ shot the black coat in hopes he could correct it before getting too deep in finishing. I've posted in a couple other of his build threads and got no replies, so I guess Jeff has me blocked.

I don't have anyone blocked.

I didn't understand what you were correcting me on in post #100 because you said "Interstage Wrap" instead of "Intertank Wrap". Therefore, when I looked at the Interstage wrap and couldn't find the flaw, I moved. In hindsight I should have asked you to elaborate.

The fault is all mine. I have to sit back and look at the photos and drawings more often instead of going by memory!

I jokingly tried to get the WOOSH guys to do it a sidestep beside LDRS, but they would not bite. A big part of running a modern NARAM is dealing with a waiver and the sport range. Since they are doing that anyway...

Or you could just go all the way and add that horizontal stripe around the intertank. I always thought that looked better anyway.
