This isn't meant to be sarcastic but, the most reliable way to get you the answer you want . . . Why not go to Semroc's website and ask them directly? You'll have an answer shortly thereafter, as they're consistently up and running.

maybe he did and didn't get an answer, so now he's asking here. That's ok. No worries.

I got an e-mail from Carl himself and he explained the corrugated wraps (or development of) were taking longer than expected, so that's the reason for the delay. Just be patient and give them a little time. I'm sure the Saturn - V will be out shortly.....

Their saturn 1b was worth the wait so suspect this one will be too :)

Agreed. I'm fixing to order their Saturn 1-B (will be my third 1/70 1-B build within a year!!) :D

Well, maybe. The real reason I getting another Saturn 1-B (1/70) is I didn't build the clustered engine mount properly in my Estes K-29 kit and really can't fly it "as is." The mount isn't exactly straight, so I'd be afraid it'll prang under power should I try to fly it. So, I'll just keep the Estes model as a static display piece and the SEMROC model for display and flying.

Excellent !

This is a dream come true for me.

My Estes Saturn V was finally destroyed 2 summers ago, and I have the itch to build another.

L.T.C.
