Revell 1/144 Saturn V Apollo 11
Posted by Tony T on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 4:22 PM

Completed the build today...I have the paper LUT and Crawler yet to build...and to take some better pictures! Anyhow, here are a few in the meantime...Revell kit, aftermarket decals used to depict Apollo 11. Left off 4 of the 8 ullage rockets and used white decals to depict the white areas on the CM. A nice shelf build for me!

ONE of these days someone will run a "Space Race GB".  Not saying who will do it...  Whistling

Love the little guys on the base to reveal the sheer monolith of this massive machine!! Very cool. Always wanted to do one of these.

I built a similar one in 1970- it self-destructed with age.  Nice model!

And I built it in about 1969!!  I gave a presentation about it in my elementary school, showing off the stages and the LEM and command module.  I seem to remember the base being a orangy-yellow, though.  Thanks for the memories!!

Yes, Gene, your memory is correct. The base was bright yellow!

Trip down memory lane for me too. Same timeframe as Chuck and Gene.

Thanks for the memories. Nice job (you did a lot better on yours than I did back then!)

Memories…..I also built one around 1969 and I also gave a presentation in my science class…..or almost did.  My wonderful science teacher picked the model up just as I was to start and sighted down the model as you would a scope.  The CM and all stages went crashing to the floor and destroyed many.  After the laughter in the class died down, all I got from him was "Oops! Sorry about that".  Ahh yes, Memories.  I will also do this one again some day.

Nothing ever fits……..and when it does, its the wrong scale.

Best way to lie is tell the truth………Carefully edited truth.
