This is a semi-scale, or ant-scale flying model for the Apollo 5
Saturn IB. The completed model stands ~13.67 inches tall and
uses 18 mm B's or C's, best flights are with C6-7s. Some skill is
required in building this model, but if you can open the box
without cutting off a thumb, you can likely build this kit in a few
days. Flights of up to 900 feet can be had.
Apollo 5 was a one-of-a-kind Saturn IB that was launched with a
legless Lunar Module aboard which was tested in orbit by
remote control. Thus, the rocket carried an Apollo adapter
topped with a simple nosecone. This kit is in scale with our other
Dr. Zooch Saturn I and Saturn IB kits, so you can add it to your
set. Or, if you are a collector you can just pay way too much
money for it, store it in a climate controlled room for a couple of
decades and then sell it to someone else for beyond way too
much money. Either that or just have the satisfaction that you
have an Apollo 5 Saturn IB.
