They are 0.5 by 0.5 inch squares on the cutting mat.

Of course, there's also scratch-building................



Here's a thought...Semroc was working on a 1/100 Saturn V kit. You might see if they have a CM/LES available.

That's because I only put them up there about an hour ago.

Don't forget the Service Module wrap!

Sandman,
Where are the 1/100 SM decals on your site ?
I only find the 1/70th, which I already have.

The 1/100th Service Module wraps are right below the Saturn V decal set.

Decals and Service Module wrap duly ordered from Sandman.

I'm very disappointed Estes is taking that position on the replacement parts for the LES. 40 odd years worth of Estes Saturn Vs and I'll bet every one that's ever launched could use a replacement LES. I gave up and got a Skylab nose cone from Sandman a couple of years ago. I have a Sirius/Moldin' (the new one) that I may use. Goodness knows it is tough and will add some nose weight.

Make no mistake, this Saturn 1B will be launched, and often.

And if anybody was wondering the Service Module tube is BT-58 and the first stage core tube is Semroc Series 11.

I have to agree with you on that. How much trouble would it be for Estes to kit the LES...? I wonder what the reason is behind the decision not to do so...

Semroc does have the 1/100 CM, but it is balsa. Nicely finished it would be hard to distinguish from the original Centuri plastic version.

Semroc also has the LES tubing and nosecones at 1/100 scale (forget the exact part numbers....Carl or Sheryl would know).

That would only leave the tower truss work to recreate from scratch, which would be a challenge but certainly not impossible. Evergreen Scale Models and probably Plastruct makes the correct diameter styrene rod stock to use on that.

Well, Guys:

Through the miracle that is the Postal Service, I got my Semroc order in the mail today. Series 11 tubing and coupler (hey, this isn't my first rodeo) and BT-58 tubing and coupler.

I added a little to the BT-58 to correct for the too-short Service Module so I can use Sandman's chrome SM wrap.

Pictures in a little bit . . .
