    Bengt,

    I, uh, don't actually have the Saturn V files. George has them. He's been up to his eyeballs in work, and I've actually not heard from him in months. You've probably noticed he's not been around here lately, either.

    I'll try to e-mail him and see if we can work something up. Sorry to keep putting this off.

    Hi Guys,

    As Mike has mentioned I've been really busy with work. Sorry about not being around here much to support the 1/480th series.

    All the 1/480th models are finished it's just a matter of assembling them and getting them off to Mike then to Jon's site. You guys have been extremely patient and I thank you for that.:thumb:

    I'll get with Mike in the next few days.

    George

    Mole,

    I just recently got all the files from George that I was lacking.

    I need to create a set of instructions, however, I'm up to my eyeballs in work & my kid's activities, so that's slowing things down.

    However, now having the files at least clears the way.

    Saturn V Updates?

    I agree, Mole,

    Easy does it - if we have waited this long, we can wait a few months more . . .

    Seriously, we are very grateful for the Saturn and LUT models and we look forward to the latest detail updates on the Saturn V.

    Best regards,
    Bengt :thumb:

    I have no problem whatsoever with you guys having a little fun at my expense. Shoot, we promised you the models, and look how long it's been... I have it coming! ;-)

    It's all good fun.

    Saturn V Model Updates In The Making

    Hi Mike,

    You are indeed a great and positive guy. I was perhaps being a little disrespectful but it wasn´t meant that way - I apologize.

    I, and many others with me, it seems, look forward with great anticipation to what you and George has to offer in this new Saturn model release. Whenever it arrives, it will be just as welcome!

    All the best from Stockholm,
    Bengt :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Bengt,

    No apology is necessary at all. I don't know how things are done in Stockholm, but in Ohio, people who are friends are allowed to tease each other good-naturedly, and as I consider you to be one of the really good people around here, I figure it wouldn't be any other way. I'd be disappointed were it otherwise!

    Really, I promise to try to get things moving. George is up to his eyeballs, and has given me the reigns, so I'll get on it as soon as I can.

    Hi Mike,

    I was just wondering - will we see a new Saturn V 1:480 model any day soon? I look forward very much to building a historically correct Apollo 11 and LUT ensemble. Thanks.

    Best regards from Stockholm,

    So busy

    Hi guys,

    Work has kept me very busy for the last year and a half I haven't had time for card modeling at all, so sorry to have abandoned this thread.

    I'm happy to hear that there is still interest in it.

    Mike will do it justice when time permits. Life just seems to get in the way of well laid out plans.

    Kind regards,
    George
