    I bet youíll finish it! And if you choose not to, you still have a very interesting build thread and serve as a great ambassador by publicly building this model.

    Steven, I sincerely hope you finish this build. And allow it to be shown, either by yourself or a representative. This would be excellent for scale competition.

    I was wondering (having problems myself) if anyone can show me a source for the color of the umbilical connections all across the Saturn V. It will be GREATLY appreciated!

    Trying to talk myself into filling in the tube spirals on the first stage. They've already been taped off.

ID:	332482 Two of the resin pieces that came with this kit were measurably undersized as you can see in the comparison on the drawings. So once again I had to manufacture my own parts to match the scale I needed. I then taped a section of sandpaper onto the second stage where these will go to sand a semi-round shape on the bottom of these two for a better fit.

    Sealing more of these wooden pieces with that "Mod Podge" filler. Nothing really to display here. So far it seems to be as effective as anything else without the offensive smell from some other alternatives.

    Getting more sealing done. I'm presently sealing the two systems tunnels found on the first stage. I apply four coats with sanding in between. The pieces on the third stage are done, (see any reference photos), the systems tunnel on the second stage is done, oops, I made a mistake, there is one tunnel cover on the third stage to be done. It is the larger of the two. BTW, Merry Christmas everyone and don't drive anywhere if you must drink. I want to know everyone is safe here.

    Just close your eyes and floor it. It works for me.

ID:	335203 Using .030 and .010 scrap plastic behind the liquid hydrogen fairings to fill in the gaps made by the corrugated and sheet styrene details.

    Nothing happening for a few weeks. The two first stage systems tunnel will be treated in a similar manner as the liquid hydrogen fairings were. Because I was getting down to the last remnants of my .030 sheet plastic, I had to use five or six pieces per tunnel. So gluing these pieces on the backs of the tunnels will be next. I still need to fill the spirals on the lower half as well. At some point, the SLA and IU will need a second coat of thinned epoxy to fill in the layered sections from 3D printing. After this, I very well may be ready to shoot the first coat of primer.
