1/70 Apogee Saturn 1B - Flying Model Rocket Or Static Display
Multimedia Model Kit, Box Condition: Good+
Retails for $271.00. Incredibly well detailed and scaled from actual plans. Can be built as a flying scale model rocket or a museum quality static model- and many are already displayed in museums. Features highly detailed injection-molded Apollo Capsule, injection-molded engine nozzles, cast-resin fins that are true-to-scale (other models of the Saturn 1B often use bulky oversize fins that are not authentic) to make the rocket stable when launched), urethane resin details for the booster interstage section, injection molded transition with fits perfectly over the cluster of fuel tank tubes, meticulously detailed vacuum form wraps for the booster thrust structure, Interstage, and 2nd stage, eye-poppingly detailed embossed wrap for the transition of the 2nd stage to the Service Module,special "raised ink" wrap for the Service Module portion to bring out the raised panel lines on the rocket, and to aid in masking off the different color patterns, injection molded Reaction Control System (RCS) nozzles on the Service Module, "Perfect Fit" body tubes, 29mm motor mount for E, F, and G rocket motors, five-color water-slide decals that include markings for all of the various Saturn 1B missions flown by NASA, four hours of video instruction that show not only where to place the parts, but how-to put them together correctly for high-quality fit and a lightweight rocket. There are 10 pages of superb painting instructions and drawings show the colors on the rocket, removable display nozzles (other models don't even include nozzles), vacuum form baseplate that shows the excellent surface detail on the bottom of the rocket, vacuum form antenna panels, precision cut cardboard centering rings for a strong and lightweight rocket that fits together perfectly, Kevlar shock cords, high strength rip-stop nylon parachutes (24-inch and 36-inch diameter chute, which brings your model down nice and slow after a rip-roaring launch), 1/4 inch launch lugs, RockSim design file so you can pick which motors you'd like to fly, and to determine how well the rocket will perform with those motors and CP location charts, to show you how to balance the rocket if you choose the "spinning" model launch system. Never started and all parts that were factory sealed are still in the factory sealed bags; the parts that were never factory sealed have been inventoried complete with decals and CDs which include the extensive instructions.
