    Has anybody ever built, or know of, a Saturn V Model that had 3 stages?

    Even better, with the same number of engines as the original?

    I have seen multi staged Sat 5s, but the best one I saw had a single large motor in the second stage to make room for fold-out fins upon staging

    Tom Beach, editor of Sport Rocketeer (NAR magazine) I think I saw it at NARAM 60 and he included a pic of the staging in this month's issue
