    Saturn V Kits availability

    What manufacturers have flyable Saturn V kits available?

    So far as I know, there are

    Dr. Zooch
    Estes
    Apogee
    Sirius

    I can't find the Peter Alway version. Google search indicates these were available from BMS but they do not show up on their website.
    Sheri's / Red Arrow is gone.
    Polecat has no stock and their web site indicates they do not know when more inventory will be available.
    And of course the Centuri & Cox versions have not been around for decades......
    And Steve Eves never came out with a kit version of his

    Any others out there that I missed???

    Thanks

    Does anyone have some shots of the Polecat Saturn? The description they give on their site is quite vague and shows nothing about any features. Rather dismal description for $800.00 worth of cardboard and fiberglass. I'd expect to see much more.

    I'm hoping someone figures out a way to convert the Lego Saturn V into a flyable model. I won't hold my breath.

    I just picked up an Estes one for about $70 on eBay. Looking forward to building it! I'm launching it with an E15W-4 to get some nice billowing clouds of exhaust.

    That is a customized polecat Saturn V next to my wife. Was a really nice kit if you were willing to put in the time, and machine the finishing touches. I really need to pull it out and fly it again...
