Well, at least now you'll know what the thing's supposed to look like when you finish it .

Default SA-205 data

Carl:

I found a bunch of decent scale data for this specific mission. Way too much to post here as attachment. I'll try emailing it you to at Semroc, but we might want to see if someone here would be willing to temporarily host it (note--some of these are commercial grade photos and should probably not be freely distributed across the net). Example--I've got the John Pursley photos.

We have some master modelers lined up to build up to 10, but need 20-25 more built. Launch Magazine is behind us on this project and Mark Mayfield and I are working out details on contest prizes for the best model.

We need these completed and returned to us before October 7, 2008. We will supply the model and capsule, shipping container, and return postage. You supply the manpower, modeling skills and building supplies.

We are offering this first to the SVDT which has some of the best modelers in the world. If you know of additional modelers that can build a pristine Saturn 1B in a short period of time, please let me know on this thread. We need these to all be the "best of the best."

We will not be able to return any of the models except possibly the best one or two as judged by an independent panel of judges. Take plenty of pictures and we will as well.

Any additional details of the specific finishing aspects of SA-205 are also requested. Please keep this quiet and within this group and the other modelers that are brought onboard until we make it public.


A bunch of photos are viewable/downloadable at http://www.apolloarchive.com/apollo_gallery.html (look for the Apollo 7 link in top left of the frame).

I wonder if anyone could try to reshoot this photo 40 years later...

Well, then we'd need one of Sheri's Saturn 1B's!

Darn, we could easily have set it up a month ago!

Hopefully you can just post or email the modifications you want. I got my big honkin' box today and am ready to start on it. I'll stick to tube spiral treatments and such, surely not affected by your mods.

Also, you probably don't need to go Priority on the capsule kits--it's not like any of us will be stopped and needing these early next week. Cheapest/easiest would be the way to go.

Dang it, I was planning on starting the project during the three day weekend, but our USPS seems to have gotten crappy on Atlanta the past couple of months. My sky-of-gold certificates got here today properly mangled one or two days after everybody else seemed to get them (actually, they aren't in that bad a shape, though my mail carrier did nearly put a crease in one of them).
