    this is my clone of the 1/100th scale Saturn 1B that was available from Centuri, then later Estes.

    the build thread is on YORF

    thanks to all the folks that helped me source the tubes and wraps...the tubes, nose cone, and LES balsa parts are available from SEMROC now:D

    Though not nearly as detailed as the ones previously displayed, this Saturn 1b from Sandman was an easy build that flies great!

    The Big Bertha is just for a size reference.

    Yeah, this isn't mine but it is worth a gander. Here is Steve Eves' Saturn 1B on display at Red Glare VIII. 24' tall and in the neighborhood of 600lb. Staged, with deployable fins on the sustainer. One 6" mount and four 4" in the booster and a single 6" in the sustainer. Here's the official page (yes, there are two of them). http://www.rocketsmagazine.com/saturn-1b-projects/

    Welcome to the SCALE - Saturn 1 Gallery on TRF.

    This gallery showcases the Saturn I and those rockets derived from it. Particularly appropriate in this thread are the following:


    Centuri: Saturn 1B: KS-10 or #5140
    Cox: Uprated Saturn 1B: #5025
    Dr Zooch: Saturn SA5:
    Dr. Zooch: Saturn Ib:
    Estes: Saturn 1B: K-29 or #1229
    Estes: Saturn 1B: #2048
    Neubauer: Micro Saturn 1B:
    Roachwerks: Saturn 1B:
    Semroc: Saturn 1B: KS-1



    as well as any upscales, downscales, clones, kitbashes or other derivative works. Even Goonies qualify!


    The Saturn IB (pronounced "one B", alternatively known as the Uprated Saturn I) was an American launch vehicle commissioned by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for use in the Apollo program. It was an uprated version of the Saturn I rocket, which replaced its S-IV second stage with the much more powerful S-IVB, which gave it enough payload capability to allow it be used for early testing of the Apollo spacecraft while the larger Saturn V needed to send Apollo to the Moon was still being developed. Unlike the earlier Saturn I, it could launch either the partially fueled Apollo Command/Service Module (CSM), or the fully fueled Lunar Module (LM) into low Earth orbit.

    The Saturn IB was used for two unmanned CSM suborbital flights, one unmanned LM orbital flight, and for the first manned CSM orbital mission (first planned for Apollo 1, later Apollo 7). It was also used for one orbital mission, AS-203, in which it carried neither a CSM nor a LM, so that the S-IVB would have unburned liquid hydrogen fuel remaining in its tank in orbit. The purpose of this mission was to support design of the restartable version of the S-IVB used in the Saturn V, by observing the behavior of the liquid hydrogen in weightlessness.

    After completion of the Apollo Moon landing program, the Saturn IB was used to launch the Apollo CSM on three crew missions to the Skylab space station, and a joint US-USSR space mission, the Apollo Soyuz Test Project.

    Centuri Saturn 1B (KS-10 or #5140) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Centuri Engineering

    Saturn 1B

    KS-10 or #5140

    Introduced: 1969
    Final Year: 1982
    Designer:

    Type: Scale, Cluster
    Motor Mount: 2x18mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 26.8"
    Diameter: 2.02"
    Span:
    Weight: 4.7 oz

    Mfg. Description: This sharp looking model of the first manned APOLLO flight vehicle stands over 2 feet tall, yet weighs less than 5 ounces. Perfect for all modelers to build, Saturn 1-B promises you an eye catching display plus thrill high altitude flights. Powered by two engines, the 1-B lifts off, climbs hundreds of feet to peak altitude and then separates into two parts. The APOLLO spacecraft descends on a colorful 16" parachute while the launch vehicle returns safely on a big red and white 24" chute. Kit includes illustrated assembly and launching instructions plus directions for reliable clustering. (Centuri 1969 Catalog)

    =====

    A detailed replica of the pioneer Apollo booster, the Saturn 1B is a top flight performer which tips the scales at less than 5 ounces. It uses technological advances in molded plastic parts, corrugated plastic body skin, and pre-formed detail parts. The precise detail and contrasting marking will draw praise and sighs of envy from all viewers be they friends, teachers, or schoolmates. (Centuri 1970 Christmas Catalog)

    =====

    SATURN 1-B is an exact 1/100th scale model of #SA-205, the first rocket to launch a manned APOLLO mission. Every detail on the model is correct - down to the exact markings that appeared on the real ship. Like its SATURN V sister, the Centuri SATURN 1-B is not a beginner's kit. Extreme care, however, was taken in designing this model so the average builder could turn out a museum quality model. Construction materials are similar to those used in the SATURN V (previous page). Very complete step-by-step construction and painting instructions, Cluster Techniques Report and Historical Brochure complete the kit. (Centuri 1971 Catalog)

    Estes Saturn 1B (#2048) Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Estes Industries

    Saturn 1B

    #2048

    Introduced: 1991
    Final Year: 1993
    Designer:

    Type: Scale
    Motor Mount:
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 26.5"
    Diameter: 2.618"
    Span:
    Weight: 5/33 oz

    Mfg. Description: An integral part of the Saturn Space Program, the Saturn 1B's first stage was composed of 8 H-1engines creating thrust of over 1.5 million pounds. The second stage power was supplied by one J-2 engine with 200,000 pounds of thrust. The Saturn 1B could place 40,000 pounds in low earth orbit. Saturn 1B flights were used to test the launch vehicle, Apollo spacecraft systems and the Apollo spacecraft's heat shields for re-entry capability.
    1/100th scale model of the predecessor of the mighty Saturn V. Our model includes high relief plastic body wraps, plastic tank shroud, Apollo capsule and engine display nozzles. It also features special sub-assembly painting procedures. Recovery from launches to 425 ft. are accomplished when the main stages are lowered under an 18" parachute and the upper stage and Apollo capsule are lowered via a 12" parachute attached to a special recovery harness. A 3/16 inch Maxi-Rod is required for launch. (Estes 1991 Catalog)

    Dr Zooch Saturn SA5 Basic Information.

    [​IMG] Dr Zooch Rockets

    MODEL NAME: Saturn SA5, Saturn I SA5, Saturn I Block II SA5

    NUMBER:

    Introduced:
    Final Year:
    Designer: Wes Oleszewski

    Type: Scale
    Motor Mount: 1x18mm
    Recovery: Parachute
    Stages: 1
    Length: 12.5"
    Diameter:
    Span:
    Weight:

    Mfg. Description: If anyone tells you that SA-5 was not the coolest rocket ever flown they are only demonstrating their lack of taste in rocket coolness. Such people are likely to be found at the local Whatever Mart buying one of those buy-n-fly kits with plastic fins. We urge you not to talk further to them as you can lose I.Q. points just standing too close to such people. Instead, you should buy this kit right now and regain those points that you may have already lost. SA-5 was the first of the Saturn I Block II vehicles.
    Launched on January 29, 1964 it was one of a kind. Rather than an Apollo spacecraft, SA-5 carried a really pointy Jupiter nose cone. This kit, although being ant-scale, is very close to actual scale -- in fact it’s as close as we could get it without having to get any smarter ourselves. The kit is in scale with our other Saturn I Block II and our Saturn IB. It stands just under 13 inches tall (just for luck) and comes with a nosecone that is so pointy, when you hold it in your hand you’ll hear your father’s voice saying “Be careful you don’t put someone’s eye out with that.” Rumor has it that when JFK visited Cape Canaveral and saw the real SA-5 on the pad he pointed toward the nose cone and told von Braun, “Be careful you don’t put someone’s eye out with that."

    You’ll also get the Dr. Zooch instruction booklet, where Dr. Zooch himself, from the crazy spaceflight cartoon strip “The Program,” guides you through some madcap instructions that are almost more fun than the rocket itself. This kit is part of the line of Dr. Zooch rockets and there are plenty more where this came from. So you can buy it, build it, crash it and WHO CARES!, we’ll sell you another one! Just be careful you don’t put someone’s eye out with it. (Dr Zooch 2011 Web Ad)

    Pretty much finished her up last night. I chose the 4 C6-3 motor assembly. Can't wait to launch it and see her go! Just wanted to share. Great kit btw!

    Very nice! One of the few manned space program rockets that I'm interested in building. You did a great job.

    How about some flight photos when you get around to firing it up?

    Sorry I don't have more detailed closeups.
    It's a conversion of the card stock model here: http://jleslie48.com/gallery_models_apollo.html a little more than halfway down the page.
    The first photo was taken a couple months ago by my Dad, and the second one was taken at the October Tripoli Tampa launch by Anthony King.
    It's built for D engines, but I'm itching to fly it on an E18! :D

    Dr. Zooch Saturn 1B I bought at NARAM-46. This one has some upgrades that were done by "Rosko-Racer" here on the forum. Raul took all of the wraps redrew the lines and the details. He also added a capsule wrap and redid the tanks adding detail.

    Now that I look at your 1B, I may have to do a wrap for the transition... What a well "dressed" 1B that is! :wink:
