    Okay, here are the markings as close as I could get them. Align the seams with the tunnel markings and keep the hatch positioned between the A and B fins.

    Thanks everyone. There is still so much to do but the cylindrical parts go together pretty quick. Really looking forward to seeing the finished result. Thanks again everyone for all the support. Truly appreciated.

    Cannot wait to see what you'll do when you'll have completed the third stage. With your detail care I should expect an UHU scaled-down lunar module. At least it has foldable landing gear. Should be no problem to put it inside ;)

    And here I was thinking I'd complete the project before the end of the year.

    Onwards and upwards. The next three sections are principally the same. Where they join isn't as smooth as I would have liked but, it's still coming together nicely.

    Here are the following two sections.

    Only difference for the last white section is there is no ring former inside. It will go into the last part of the structure that's why there is a different joiner at the top. The alignment for all the parts will follow the system tunnel markings.

    Thanks Mate, I knew it was going to be big...but I had no idea it was going to be this big. It's pretty cool.

    Well, it's been a while to get the sizing right on the top. I had to rebuild it about 4 times to get it to fit correctly. Fortunately, it's finally on. Now to build the top on the internal tank and I will be that much closer to completing the S-IVB.

    And here it is attached. The markings are as close to accurate as I could get them. ;)
