    Hello Everyone,

    I'd like to introduce The Apollo Historical Series! This is a collaborated effort between Mike B the original Mini Saturn V designer, and myself George B.

    This exciting and one of a kind series will include over 20 models covering the history of the Apollo program. Re-live the ground breaking events at Pad 34, the rollout of the mighty Saturn V SA-500F the Facilities Integration Vehicle, the history making Apollo 11 flight which landed us on the moon, Skylab and the Apollo Soyuz Test Program. Each model has been meticulously designed in 1/480th scale with attention to mission accurate details, no two models are the same! Highly detailed but easy to build, they’ll make a great addition to your Spacecraft displays.

    Stay tuned for more information on the releases of this never before seen series coming soon!



    Kind regards,

    Just in time

    I am just completing my mini-crawler and I'm going to start to build MLP, LUT and then Saturn. :mrgreen:

    ... and :eek: You arrive just in time to release your historical series, and I can't wait to build all of them ... or at least the Apollo-17, the last to the Moon.

    Thanks George for your mastery and generosity. :thumb:

    Best, Nando

    You are part of the reason George and I are doing this. Your little crawler inspired us, to be sure.

    I think you guys are going to be pleased with the models when we're finished. George and I have been digging deep to get them as right as they can be, and George's paint-jobs are just amazing.

    Hang in there guys, they'll be out soon!

    The Apollo Historical Series in 1/480 Scale


    This is indeed a truly generous offering!
    I have been wanting to model the Saturn 1b with an accompanying LUT for some time and this looks like a feasible undertaking.
    Thanks a lot to you both.
