1/72 Saturn V ... a semi-scratch amalgamation

Recommended Posts

Worked out a little former/support for the fairings.  Printing them in PLA so the cost is only around $15.  (Ordered them today so I should see them in the next few weeks.)

Just got the vague "rejected" email from Shapeways.  It passed all the pre-flight tests, but "weak geometry" is the excuse given in the email.

It could be the geometry of your connecting "sprues" rather than the part itself.  Just a thought.

I've experienced it also depends on which print shop you get. ( Shapeways contracts out printing ). The folks in the U.S. may not have an issue, but the folks used in the U.K. reject it.

I had a guy at work print me these on a CR-10S. Not the best resolution but with some sanding and painting I think these will work great.  The fairings are to me the biggest issue with this kit.

COOL!  That looks pretty awesome.

 

The fairings are, by far, my most confounding issue with this thing.  If only they'd taken the time to get the original parts correct.
