Congratulations, I am passionate about space and in the near future I intend to build the ISS. I also admire your work and I will follow it ... as a suggestion: it could be interesting to add the size of the earth and the moon and their distance proportional to reality. And I could contribute to make the project more realistic ... I will follow your project ....

Hey Rob, This is a good effort and I'm looking forward to more posts. Mine was OOB but still is an impressive model to build. What a great part of world history! Carry on!

Thanks guys

 

Second Stage is in progress.  This is the thrust structure and tanks in place, with all the fuel line plumbing ready to install.

Added the insulation to the J-2 Engines.  I also started the Heat Shield.  Got it primed and will paint the top side Red Oxide Primer and the bottom White.

Added some wiring to the Thrust Structure.  More to come.

Started the Third Stage Thrust Structure.

Third Stage Progress.

Adding pieces to the Instrument section over the weekend, and working on the Lunar Module, Service Module, Command Module, and Escape Tower. Need to wrap this up so I can start the 1/12 Mercury Redstone.

Spent a little time on the 3rd stage this weekend, but not much. Spent a lot of time with my granddaughter and decorating the house for Christmas

Beautiful work! I was just at Kennedy Space Center a few weeks ago and got a real good look and lots of photos of the Saturn V on display there.

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...
