Hi all, been a hot minute since I've last posted with my 1/72 orbiter (a slow and ongoing project but ongoing none the less!). After watching First Man on the biggest IMAX screen in Texas, and re-watching Apollo 13, and after going on a road trip that took me to the NASA centers in the southeast (Michoud, Stennis, Marshall, and Kennedy), I decided that I need a big Saturn V for the office. Short of going with one of those wooden 'executive' models, and overpaying for a discontinued Dragon kit, I think the only game in town is Apogee's 1/70 Saturn V. I've watched some of the instructional assembly videos, and it looks like a challenging kit but I'm ready for something a little different from the shake and bake kits. I'm a little sad that an S-V that big that isn't able to be separated into its stages, and I wouldn't be flying it either. Vacuum-formed parts are a departure for me as well. I've built a little Estes Redstone so I'm familiar with filling in the tube seams of a model like this, and replacement parts are readily available if I screw something up. There is little information otherwise on this kit, and few reviews. Has anyone here built one? Handled one? Knew a guy that knew a guy that built one?
