The Mighty Saturn V
Posted by JJFlyer on Friday, July 27, 2018 10:19 AM

Does anyone know where i can get a model saturn v? I would prefer the stages be seperable but it's not a requirement. I'm going to see one at The Kennedy space center in a few weeks so that and my growing intrest in space exploration have sparked my intrest to build one. 

Thanks for the tips,

Jamie

Several on eBay: Here is one. 

 

I did buy one of the Dragon 1/72 Saturn V's, but, it wasn't what I wanted. It was a display model already painted and you only had to assemble the five parts. Granted it was over 5 foot tall.

Both Revell/Monogram and Airfix have the Saturn V in 1/144 scale and are available almost anywhere.  If you want bigger, look on the "bay" for the Revell Sat V in 1/96 scale or the Dragon kit in 1/72, but be prepared to pay scalper's prices for these larger birds.

All of them are able to be built as one or in sections (usually by twist-lock) and ALL of them have published issues or errors.  But they are all fixable.

I know there is (was) rather a decent abount of AM for the 1/144 versions.

Went looking to see what was available for 1/96.

Found decals:

CSM photo-etch:

And this overall set:

Not much on Shapeways (surprisingly).

Might be more, but I'm afraid I've worn out my search parameters.

Also Apogee flying model rockets has a nice 1/72 Saturn V.  And an even nicer 1/72 Saturn 1B, in my opinion.   The CSM's on both do need a little work but they are nice scale kits.
