    No kidding. :grin: I just finished the second F-1 and I'm cutting the first piece of the third. I also have the LM downloaded and waiting in the wings. I figure I'll at least let the second stage come on stage before I start that.
    Estimated completion date: 2010. :wink:

    Does It mean that some news are at the horizon...?!:-D

    It's a wonderful base for the Saturn.

    --Nando, well, I do think the base is already up in the parts section.

    I think this one is Greelt's own creation. The one already on jleslie's site is different than this one, although they look similar.
    This reminds me that i need to finish that last F-1 engine, though. I haven't even started the thrust structure yet! :)

    Apollo / Saturn V

    The launchpad is not completely ready and therefore not available at the moment.As soon it will be finished i will publish it.
    On John Leslies site there is already a great model of the launchpad but unfortunally that is in 1:100 scale and since i don't have the means to enlarge it to fit my Saturn V i decided to build my own.
    It fit's great with the Saturn V but it is not to scale, the platform would meassure 85 by 100 cm (or 33 by 39 inch) wich would take to much room.

    Hey Greelt

    Excellent work as ever, Ive really enjoyed the build so far and have just to put the Cable tunnels and Tank Cap on the 1st stage to complete it... those 5 engines were murder....

    Im kinda beginning to think that sacling it all up to 1/32 wasnt the best idea....


    But its been fun so far

    Drop me a line if you need stage 2 details
