Monogram 1/144 Apollo Saturn V Rocket
Posted by oortiz10 on Sunday, December 27, 2020 3:22 PM

Hey FSM, 

This was originally going to be a display for my classroom. My plan was to have the Saturn V displayed with its stages separated. As I started the project, I learned that the Airfix kit would be a better kit to show in an "exploded view". So, I decided to build this up as a lamp for my office. The only "innards" I used from the kit was the top "dome" of Stage 1's fuel tank. Otherwise, the kit's totally hollow. To light it, I used some LEDs from Evan's Design and polyfiber for the smoke. It sits on a threaded rod and some "girders" shaped from wire screen. 

Hope you like it!

 

Thanks for looking. Comments, questions and criticisms welcome.

Cheers,

That is awesome, very cool project.

I've never heard of polyfiber before, I'll have to google up on it, could be super useful!
