Saturn 5 Moon Machine
Posted by Hodakamax on Friday, July 01, 2016 4:01 PM

Several years ago my wife bought this Revell Saturn 5 moon rocket for my Christmas present. A fun build but how do you display a 55'' tall staged Saturn 5? I finally put it on a spare wall space in my office. I added a couple of Astronouts for scale and its been there for years to make me happy!

Nicely displayed and your proportions look good.  I took this photo while at the Kennedy Space Center.  I purposely snapped it with this tourist in there for scale.

Thanks for your input everybody, I did check out the Saturn V at the Space center quite a while back. There's also an engine in the Smithsonian in DC. What an impressive machine. I regret that I never saw one launch. What an important achivement for Man while going to the moon--Wow!

I agree, Max. It really is an important achievement. If I could go back to those early days I'd move down there just to be close to it all. What a cool time it was.

Hey Steve, I was always boggled by seemingly unreal numbers from the first stage five engine cluster. 13 metric tons per second fuel consumption required some incredible pumps! The whole machine was quite the beast. I could discuss this all day!

PS--I did find this cool picture of a horizontal display.Saturn V Assembly

Hey Max, that is a cool picture.

No doubt about it. The Machine was a beast for sure. 

"I could discuss this all day!"

Laughing.. I totally agree!
