Re: [space-modelers] Revell Saturn V's on sale at squadron

Good deal dude! And no, I wasn't bragging so much to brag, but rather to say
that such good deals can still be possible if one looks for them (and has
the patience to find them).
Hey Jay, I wasn't trying to blow my horn either but merely pointing out you
never know what you may find at one.. Sometimes whenever we travel & we run
across a town that has a Hobby Lobby, we stop & have a look see. But these
kind of deals are far & few now a days, just like the 50% off any item
coupons. Like I said, you may stumble on a extremely good deal every once in a
while, so always take a look you never know. And yes, you did get a good deal too!

aftermarket parts, and I have lots of 1/96 LM's and CSM's laying
around so that should not be much trouble. So overall it's better to
use the new kit and replace the shoddy parts with New Ware and
Realspace stuff then use the good and collectible 25th ann. edition.
- Since everyone talking about this kit, I might as well throw my 2 cents in -
When my son and I build ours, I ran into a problem that I could have avoided
by dryfitting things first.
The problem is this - the holes in the some of plastic sheets used as body
tubes appear to be punched upside-down.
This is most crucial in the lowest tube section [S-IC fuel tank, IIRC] on
the first stage, and if you assemble it in what appears to be the correct
way, you will not be able to fit the first intertank, and second tube
section [lox tank] in place properly.
This is a major pain in the butt if you've already glued the fuel tank
So please save yourself some trouble, and dry fit first!
