I have to admit after 70 posts I will delight in you moving on to other models. You may have also convinced me I do not want to build an Estes SV that badly! :) At 50 bucks I may have to get one but only for some rainy day.
Hi Jeff - The end is near!!!!Believe me, I'm overdue for a build change myself.I would have never gone into that much detail on some parts of the build, but there is a LOT of these kits out there and hopefully I've cleared up a few "gotchas."A big change is coming in a few days, hang in there!
Wow, I'm amazed at what I've got ahead of me with this build. I just want to give a big THANK YOU for posting these steps in such detail. I've had an interest in the space program for a long time and looked around for a model of the Saturn V to buy, but there's nothing out there that I wanted. So when I saw the Estes kit I bought it so I could build my own.However, I've never built a model rocket before so you know how badly this will probably turn out for me. Before I start I've decided to build a bunch of other model rockets to get some experience with certain things, and I've got to say I'm having a LOT more fun than I expected. From what little experience I have so far I'm quickly learning how much more I need before starting the Saturn V, but I look forward to the fun I'll have getting it!!!Thanks again!
To fb233f44-1a9c-11e1-b90b-000bcdcb471e,Your welcome - I hope the blog posts help you in the build.The Saturn V is a very rewarding project, but probably not the best choice as a first rocket build! You were smart to build some smaller rockets first to learn the terminology and techniques.All the best!
