Tom,

Check out the KSC Visitor's Center page at:

   http://www.kscvisitor.com/main.html

or the new Saturn V Center at:

  http://www.kscvisitor.com/saturnv.html

(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.

Hello,

I'm looking for a scale model of the Saturn V moon rocket for my dad,
who is a great fan of the space program and of that time. I remember
seeing this kit a few years ago, but haven't seen any now that I am
looking for it. I think there was a 1/96 and a 1/144. The 1/96 scale
would be great, if the price wasn't too steep.

I also knew that Estes made a "flyable" model rocket of the Saturn V
that was pretty impressive also (1/100). Does it have as much detail
as the plastic scale models for display?

If anyone knows where I could possibly find this, or start my search
please let me know.

Thanks!

Tom

The Revell 1/96 scale Saturn V is available at the KSC visitors center for
$120, so its better to find it mailorder for maybe $80.

At the RCHTA show a couple weeks back Revell/Monogram has what looked to be
a 1/144 Saturn V on display. Don't know a release date or price...

I spotted this kit yesterday in a local model shop.
It was priced at 25.
Yes, that was a pound sign, I'm in England.
Either this means you can rush out and buy one now, or (and I'd be very
suprised), we get the new releases before you do.

Keep 'em up!
