|Ironman One||I was informed AMT is to reissue the 1/200 scale "Man in Space" rocket collection kit with the cardboard launch tower diorama and original box art. Release date in late October.|
|Ironman One||The re-issue of AMT's "Man in Space" 1/200 scale rocket kit of the Saturn V, Saturn IB, Gemini-Titan, Mercury Atlas and Mercury Redstone with the cardboard Complex 39 launch tower and diorama is now out in hobby shops. $34.99. |
|jjknap||I am hoping Hobby Lobby will carry these so I can use one of their 40% coupons. They do carry a lot of AMT models.|
|jklier||I picked up the AMT kit at Hobby Lobby. Using their online 40% coupon it came out to just under $20. This kit has Mercury Redstone, Mercury Atlas, Gemini Titan, Saturn IB, and Saturn V in 1:200 scale.|
While this isn't the highest quality kit I'd still like to do a decent job on it. Can anyone direct me to some online sources for paint diagrams of these rockets?
Photos are okay but the only show one side and color can vary over time. I'd really like to see diagrams which show the color accurately. Thanks!
|the clocks running||My Airfix Saturn V kit came with a color reference. Let me know if you would like me to scan it and email it o you.|
|the clocks running||I have a Saturn V model kit that included a color reference. Let me know if you would like me to scan it and email it to you.|
I paid about $30 for this kit a couple of months ago. You really stepped into a great deal. Congrats!
|jklier||I'll definitely take you up on that offer! That will get one of them out of the way.|
Here's my email: john(dot)klier@txstate(dot)edu. Just replace the (dot) with a . Very much appreciated!
|the clocks running||John, I am glad to help out. I am emailing a PDF document of the reference sheet that I scanned right now. All the best! |
|mikelynaugh||I just picked up one of these at my local Hobby Lobby tonight. After the 40% off discount it only cost $17.99 before tax. You can't beat that price.|
Is there anyway I can get a copy of that pdf too? I don't know as much as I would like about the pre-shuttle era as I would like (yet!) and that would be a great help.
My email is: Mike (at) mikelynaugh (dot) com
Thank you guys, without this thread I would have had no clue about this kit.
|the clocks running||Mike, sure I will email you the PDF, no problem.|
|mikelynaugh||Thank you! It's great!|
|CaptSpry||I built this set a couple months ago. It really was a fun little kit to build. |
|the clocks running||Nice job on the AMT kit CaptSpry!|
|jklier||CaptSpry - Nice job on the models!|
mikelynaugh - Here's link to a forum that has a build thread for each one of the models in the kit. Looks like some helpful information in there.
the clocks running - I didn't relieve a PDF yet. Couldn't find it in my spam trap as well. Would you mind trying to send it again? Thanks a bunch!
|the clocks running||John, I will re-send the PDF. Please let me know if you receive it. Thanks|
quote: Thanks! I just finished putting all the rockets together today, I didn't realize how big that Saturn V was going to be... very cool! Time to start sanding and cleaning them up. I'll go check that out now.

|mikelynaugh||I just found this on a different forum and thought you guys might like to see it. I think it's a nice presentation of this kit, along with the Hasagawa shuttle stack.|
