    A good idea (if I had more time :rolleyes: ) :mrgreen:

    I just havn't got the patience to add more detail to my 5 F1's
    yours look pretty good,are you building more of the rocket ?

  4. Nice job! what did you use for the cooling coils?

    I have built the complete Sat V and am currently thinking about building just the first stage thrust structure and mounting it on a frame to hang on the wall. Right now it's sitting on the launch pad hiding all that detail.

    I would imagine you got this from JLeslie's lower hudson valley web-site but if you didn't heres a link to the photos of my build.


    You may have to scrole down a bit to the photo of the Sat V poiting into the sky.

    Hi there,
    Now that's incredible detaiiling!!
    I just finished my first F1 engine and I hope they assemble a little more smooth for the next four!!

    Would anyone have any drawings or even better, a card model of the Horizonal stands? After seeing what is possible with this large kit I would like to do it separated to show off the details. I have only come across the plastic stands that are included with the kits. Thanks in advance for any help offered.

    I wrapped it with Metallic Bead Cord 1mm in size. It's called On-A String, found it at Hobby Lobby. Yea it will be the hole Saturn V when it's finished, I'm starting to run out of room at home, all these 1:24 and 1:48 models take up a lot of space. There starting to take over my telescope room and that's not a good thing. I'll keep posting images on the build.

  7. Hey willis...each engine should get easier and faster, you'll develope a system and the repitition makes it go faster, by the time I got to the fifth engine I could build one in about three hours. The toughest thing to build was the shock absorbers that connect the engine to the bottom of the thrust structure.
