4D Saturn V 1/100th scale model
« on: 06/05/2014 02:36 PM »
Has anyone had any building experience with this kit?? A bit pricey at over $200.00, but seems to go together well for a large Saturn V model....

I have one.  Like most things, it has inaccuracies, but looks good from 6 feed away...

If it is anything like their Shuttle, in may not be totally accurate on the cutaway details, but it LOOKS awesome!

I picked on up at the KSC Visitor's Center on Monday.  It looks really good, except for some painting issues.  It is slightly smaller than the Revell 1/96th Saturn, as it should be, so I don't know if repainting it to fix the issues with those after market decals would work.  One of the "USA" on the first stage is oversprayed with white.  And the third stage black ring is not even all around.  The cutaway is very effective, even though it is simple. 
It was a good bargain at KSC, with 10% discount with my Annual Pass.  And buying it during the 45th Anniversary makes it more special.

Here are some pictures of the cutaway sections of the Saturn V kit and the F-1 engines.  It is a really amazing looking replica.
