Has anyone heard any updates on Greelt's 1:48 Saturn V build since July of last year?
Greelt told me a couple of weeks ago that he had some personal things come up but he would be getting back to his Saturn V shortly.
I can't wait,
Excellent!!! I can't wait either I'm starting my build today, just didn't want to "fall in love" with the project (which I know I will) and then be unable to finish :x
Oh no! I've only got 4 of my engines gone and I haven't even started the first stage! I need to get busy!
i just rescaled his model to 1:96 scale...and boy are there a lot of wee tiny parts. though i must say, this saturn v is the finest saturn v cardmodel on the internet! I can't wait for the other parts i'll post some pics of my build sometime
A downsizing, but, just maybe, do I smell someone upscaling it to maybe 1/24 scale.
Oh my god... I didn't even think about that..... PLEASE don't even tempt me... I *do* have 14ft ceilings.... (sometimes it's nice being the 3rd floor apartment)
If you run out of room, i am SURE no one will mind cutting some holes in the ceiling for the model.
Well, if you were to tell your wife/girlfriend that you "accidentally" clicked print at 200% instead of 100%. You can tell her you won't throw away the paper because that hurts the enviroment. Now, THAT would be pretty funny to try.
Ahhh, but that's the thing, *I'm* the girlfriend... so I should be safe ^^ I don't think my bf would mind
Well, is my excuse good, or is it hilariously lame. Come on, upscale it. You know you wanna...
I'm thinking that if I did upscale it, I'd have to display it like the real one at Kennedy Space Center -- laying on its side. And even then, fourteen feet long? And then someone would say, "How about 1/12 scale?" :mrgreen:
Oh, my god. I just got the urge to print one of the engines at 1/12 scale. That wouldn't be too crazy, would it? Just one engine... :twisted:
F-1 Saturn Engine in 1:12 Scale!
That makes perfect sense to me. That would be just a tiny bit bigger than the amazing model from Accurate Models (in 1:20 scale): F1
I think it´s an exciting thought. Just think of the detailing . . .
I Like BIG Card Models . . .
I think you´re on the right track - go for it. Just take a look at Gary´s plotter-printed card models of the Mercury and Gemini capsules - and, he looks quite sane, by the way:
The bigger, the better experience. :mrgreen:
All the best,
:thumb: YES! That's the way to do it!
I actually know someone with a plotter. Hmm... :mrgreen:
1/12 scale? psh...wimp. at least 2/1 scale( yes 2 times larger than real life!!!) One engine, then two, 3 won't hurt, then 5, need the 1st stage to display them on.... you see where this going.
lol how many trees do you think that'll take up?
Even for 1:1 scale, you would need corporate sponsorship and publicity to be able to afford it.... but if you got that, then you could do the whole thing out of recycled paper ^^ MY question would be... where would you build it? I don't think any of the Saturn V display facilities have room for a second rocket inside?
