    Proposed modification to Saturn V recovery system

    I seek advice on the viability of a modification to the recovery of an Estes 1/100th scale Saturn V. Rather than having the Saturn V upper stage and booster return separately, I want them connected by a common shock cord. They both retain their own parachutes. The upper stage would act like a...

    Estes Saturn V, Quintuple Cluster, Staged

    I imagine someone has posed this idea before, and I know this would be a mess, but maybe a fun mess. I have an extra Estes Saturn V Skylab (main body tube is a bit squished), but the Skylab vs Apollo doesn't much matter here. What I want to do, because I can (try), is modify it to be a cluster...

    Using Paint to Seal masking Tape

    My Saturn V is all masked and ready for the black color coat. I've seen lots of people talk about spraying down the base color to prevent runs under the masking tape. I have the tape worked down into the corrugations pretty well, so I'm hopeful to get clean lines. My question is when I spray...

    Saturn V HELP LES Ring

    So in a bone head move, I dropped the Apollo Capsule off the top of my Saturn V (the new 50th anniversary kit). The LES Tower split along the glue joints. I have the capsule the, the two truss-work supports, and the Motor and Nozzle assembly. The ring that goes about 3/4 of the way up the...

    Estes Saturn V 2157 with 4x18mm and 1x24mm Cluster & Moldin' Oldies Parts. Started in late 2010. LOL

    So like a lot of other people who have the Saturn V they are looking to build/complete them for the up coming anniversary. And Estes has the newest re-release, which I might get and put in the closet where I had left this one. Me, well I think I got this kit in late 2010 (`DOH) and had started...

    1:53 scale Saturn V

    Everybody else is doing it... Ok, so for a variety of reasons, I'm not doing much with the Saturn IB at the moment, but that will change. In the meantime, I'm starting a Saturn V with the goal of having it ready for the 50th anniversary. 1:53 scale so the main body will fit a 7.5" body tube...

    Estes Saturn 5 build

    This is my first venture into RocketryForum. I'm getting ready to construct my first Saturn V - the Apollo 11 Saturn V #2157 I'm wanting to fly this with E, F, and possibly G engines. So, I'll be using the 24 mm engine tube as the stuffer tube. In order to survive an F or G engine, I'm...

    Sirius Saturn V Mini Build Thread

    I was lucky enough to grab one of these off the forum so I thought I would post a few pictures of my build. After looking at all the other build threads on this kit, I've decided to stick very close to stock. I plan on substituting Blue Tube (already had on hand) for the 3.9" airframe and...
