    Sir jon's site. Seems obvious now I think about it.
    Thanks for the link anyway.

    Very nice... Too bad I don't have anywhere I can put it. :(

    I'll still have to build it though.

    I have downloaded this model and it looks great. Thanks Tone.
    I have a question and it may be a stuped one, but are you sure it is scaled at 1/48 and not 1/96?

    It is 1/96 for sure. Having built the other 1/96 scale 1B available I know the size of the parts on the page and this is no way 1/48. The base plate for the first stage alone covers an entire A4 page in 1/48.

    It is a lovely detailed model and way above what has been available but hopefully it will be scaled up to 1/48th as that is what I really want.

    just downloaded the files and checked them against the 1:96 Saturn V - this kit is unfortunately 1:96 but nevertheless a very beautiful model

    greetings from austria

    Thanks Tony. I thought maybe it was just me. I also had built the 1/96 Saturn 1B. I hope a 1/48 scale comes avable also.

    I'm already busy building this as the ASTM version. :grin: It will fit nicely with ekuth's SA-5 and surfduke's SA-1.
    A 1/48 would be great as well. I have Sir Ton's 1/48 Gemini-Titan on display, along with the beginnings of Greelt's 1/48 Saturn V.

    I agree a 1/48 would be outstanding, but I feel we are all so lucky we have these 1/96 scale Saturn 1B to build. Carls SA-1 is just about done, and his SA-6 is waiting in the wings.

    We are all very lucky these designers give us such fine designes.
    My hat is off to all of you.

    Ton confirmed on the Space Paper Models group that it is, indeed, 1:96 scale, as many of you have already determined.

    Darn nice model, isn't it?:)

    Thank you, Ton, for another superb model! And thanks to you, Jon, for hosting it on your fabulous web site!

    Fantastic model Jim. I have built the Space Launch Report version before but this is so much better, especially with the ASTP mod included. One thing missing from that is the launcher designation of the bottom boosters that reads SA-?? according to the individual launch.

    1/48th would be da bom though.

    I guess I've misread the text... very sorry guys...

    and also, I've also mispelled sir Ton's name... oh boy...

    guess that thesis of mine is really getting into me...

    Thank you Ton, Thank you Jon

    Thank you Ton for sharing this model with all off us.
    It is great.
    Thank you Jon for hosting this (and many other fine stuff).

    Fits perfectly between Ekuth's SA-5 and my Revell Saturn V. You all may be sorry it's not 1/48, but it suits my display very well. 1/48 makes a beautiful model, but it's just too dang big for a collection.

    Thanks again to Ton and Jon for making this beautiful model available to all of us out here in Card-land.

    I'm almost done with this model now. I build a lot of 1/48 myself, but I really love the way this model is turning out, whatever the scale. I need to save room for Greelt's Saturn V anyway. :grin: (Still building F-1s at this point...)

    The SATURN-1B has always been my favorite US Manned Space vehicle, especially in Apollo 7 color pattern. To me, it just "looks right" as a space exploration vehicle !
