As the longest, heaviest and most powerful rocket ever produced, the original Saturn V stood 110.6m high and had a diameter of 10.1m. The Saturn V was at the heart of NASA's Apollo and Skylab programs. The Saturn V's last ever use was the launch of Skylab (mission SL-1) on 14 May 1973, where the upper stage was replaced to accommodate this early space station.

This is the second monstrous 1/72 scale kit of this rocket type and it comes with brand new toolings. The most obvious difference is the upper stage, which employed an S-IVB stage from a Saturn IB rocket. What's especially significant about that this part is that half of it is made of transparent plastic to allow viewers to see Skylab nestled neatly inside. All relevant details are carefully reproduced on the two rocket stages and Skylab, and the model comes with accurate and large decals to provide relevant markings. This Saturn V kit will be a centerpiece of any space fan's collection, and as such it comes with a stable circular base to allow it to stand stably on the floor.

Features:

  • Newly tooled Saturn V rendered w/authentic detail
  • Authentic and true-to-scale representation of Skylab
  • Solar panels presented in folded position w/fine detail
  • Skylab with its solar observatory, airlock and workshop rendered in remarkable detail
  • Folded-up skeletal structure for Skylab's solar array rendered in fine detail
  • Slide-molded S-II second stage w/J-2 engine
  • Ullage rocket motors molded on second stage
  • Display stand newly designed especially for Saturn V
  • Detailed Saturn V sections can be separately assembled
  • Realistic fuel tanks installed
  • Slide-molded S-IC first stage w/F-1 engines
  • Detailed pattern on the bottom of S-IC first stage
  • Detailed gimbal motors molded on external nozzles

    Please Note! This is a large model kit in a large box. Shipping to most US destinations will be by USPS Parcel select (Ground); international orders must go via Priority International mail.
