    It really does show the growth of the American Space Program in action. Just wait until you build the Saturn V!!

    I always had a soft spot for the Saturn 1 family, and your build is really nice and clean. Great-looking model.

    Wayne,

    You did a very nice job on Ekuth's model.

    I built it as he released his design, but I really need to put my all into a complete re-build. Thanks for posting your pictures. Great inspiration.
