    Hello modelers,
    This is my first tread in any forum, so please forgive my mistakes.
    I just want to share some pictures with you.
    A few years ago (about 2005 I think) my daughter had to choose a project for her schools technology class. Main topic was “Transportation”. She chooses the SaturnV.
    After research on the Internet and some Books we gathered enough information to start the project. I don’t remember the exact scale, but it was about 1,5 m high, not much detailed but fun to build. See the following Pictures.

    It is great that your daughter can follow in your footsteps and make models. Eventually she will start to design her own. My grandsons like my models but do not have the attention or patience to build them. They are heavy into sports and they are great at that, But they do like to watch me build them models. By the size of her rocket, I bet that it was the attention getter and the center piece of the exhibition.

    Glad to hear that she got an A+ for her effort. The model is extremely well made.

    That's really beautiful work.

    Has she built anything else?

    Thank you silveroxide,

    yes, I found it great too, it is an interest, we both share and we spend more time together having just fun, unfortunately she has no time anymore. School is very demanding and time consuming. Maybe in summer we find some time to glue something together?

    Thank you
    dkaniel for your kind words

    Thank you
    Actually she did, one year later the class had to do a project in teamwork.
    I made a thread for this, check

    [FONT=&quot]Thank you Oliver

    I work in a planetarium and teach scale and distance in space to elementary students around the state. I often use scale modeling as a example and ask how many students have built or collected scale models. I usually get about 25% or 40% response from the students these days.:cry: Video games, I suppose. I'm grateful to see that some young kids are being creative, and modeling can be so educational without being bluntly academic.

    That Saturn V is definitely a piece to be proud of. She did an excellent job.:thumb:

    And well done to you for inspiring the next generation. Keep it up.

    Great looking Saturn,
    Where do I get the patern from.

    Yhank You Ronin,

    Sorry, but i don't understand,
    what do you mean with "patern" ?

  18. I guess he means where the parts of the model can be found. But I also guess Ronin didn't get the "scratchbuild" part in the thread's title...:mrgreen:
