I was crawling in my attic and found some old model rocket kits and stuff that I put up there many years ago. I found an old Saturn V kit that I never built. I was really into model rockets back in the 1962 - 1967 time frame and again in the 1988 - 1994 period when I got into high power rocketry. I have not launched a model rocket since my son was in grade school in the mid 90's so I could not remember when or where I bought the kit. The label on the box and the instructions are missing and I am not sure what happened to them. Since I am retired and have time I was thanking about building it and was Googling for the instructions. I came across an old thread in a fourm that said that some of the parts were fragile and that someone offered some replacement parts that were better. I don't know if this is still the case so I wanted to ask here. I believe that I bought it in the late 1990's and It is in a long narrow white box. I found some instructions at https://www.estesrockets.com/media/instructions/002157_SATURN_V.pdf and was wondering what the best materials and techniques might be to build it stronger since I have been out of the hobby for many years.
