    The last weeks I built Surfdukes well designed Saturn SA1 and SA4. I downsized the model from 1:72 to 1:96. Here are some photos

    I reduced the print size from 100 to 87%. Saturn SA4 was approx. 50 m high, my model is 52 cm.

    I started to build Surfduke´s launchpad 34 for my Saturn SA1 and SA4. Everything is ready except of the rails and the stairs which I will install the next days. The scale was not fitting exactly to the rockets so I had to play a little bit with the printing scale.

  11. I am truly impressed!
  12. Off topic- I notice a lot of guys don't state their country of origin. It is helpful to those of us who arrogantly assume everyone is naturally from the U.S. Just a thought
