Check out the KSC Visitor's Center page at:
or the new Saturn V Center at:
(there is a gift shop at EACH place).
Last time I was down there (Susan Still's launch), I *believe* I
remember seeing the Revell 1/96 scale plastic (non-flyable) model --
around $50 (???) or so (can't really remember price).
They've got an 800 number, take credit cards, and will ship darn near
anywhere -- browse those pages above, make a phone call or two and I
think you'll be able to find what you want.

you can be and still get down here alright."
