Would love to follow along with your build thread! I'm in the middle of building the Saturn also. Most of the assembly is complete and the major components have been primed. I did purchase the Sirius resin fin/command module set along with Gordy's SM wrap. I've also upgraded MM to 29 mm as the bird will be heavier than stock. I admit, it's been sitting for about a week as I work up the courage to tackle the wraps and fin assembly.

My stuff from Sirius came today, so I'm continuing the SV. I've built A LOT of SV's, but this is the first one I've built with vacu-formed wraps (my opinion is that the paper wraps are FAR superior) so to fill the seams where the wood half-rounds meet the molded half-rounds, I thin down some Elmer's Wood Filler with water and apply it with a toothpick. I'll then sand it after it hardens. TBC
