    THAT is some SERIOUS card model design. Look at the DETAIL.

    If that's 1:96, then I have some work to do on my designs.

    Looks like I need to learn Autocad.

    Is this the next stage on Greelt's Saturn V then? It looks amazing!

    it´s 1:48. I had paint it with Corel Draw. But I got not enough informations about it, so I paint it by guess and by gosh. It is my first shot and only a test. Maybe I will get some further informations.

    I hope Greelt will finish his Saturn V as soon as possible.

    Next step at the interstage is designing the stringers, ullage motors and other parts. Maybe I will use lasercut parts for the formers. But first I had to build my redesigned structure of the formers.

    Design Suggestion


    After seeing your design, I was inspired to play with a similar design in 1/96.

    Instead of individual parts connecting the structural rings, I'm using single piece stringers that run from the top ring down through each ring to the bottom ring, slotting into each ring (similar to a cross halving joint in woodworking).

    It provides a very sturdy structure, and looks good too. Just try to keep the slots reasonably tight.

    Hope this helps.

    I think many are awaiting further updates of your design.

    Here's a picture of the framework for my 1/96 Interstage for the SRB, and a 2-ring version for inside the forward skirt. Note the interlocking slots that I described above.

    If you have MS Word, they are yours for the taking. I'll e-mail them to you, and you can re-size to your requirements.

    Feel free to include them in your 1/480th Saturns ... just kidding (I think)...

    I just came back from a week in Orlando Florida. I spent 2 of those days at Kennedy Space Center (The wife was not very happy). I took over 150 pictures of the Apollo/Saturn V. This is a full scale rocket laying on its side and separated into its stages. However, I believe the interstage was still attached at one end. When I go through these pictures, I'll post some detail pictures of the area you are working in. George B lives about 3.5 hours from KSC, so he probably has plenty of pictures too. If you ever get to Florida, KSC is a MUST SEE!!!

    Waeschens, do you think i can have a copy of the interstage for the saturn v i'm building please? i want more details on the interstage and i ran across yours which looks absolutely fantastic!:thumb: thank you for your help!
  18. Well I guess it is about time I got on the ball and built this thing. I have held off because I have the Revell Plastic 1/96 version. But since I got converted to paper it has allways been a project I wanted to tackle. I like what I see here. Those inner rings make a big difference.
