Like their 1:72 cutaway space shuttle, Fame Master/4D Vision also has had planned the release of a 1:100 cutaway Saturn V:

I asked at my hobby shop last week and he said "It retails at $279.00". But at 1/100 scale that is nearly four feet tall! Hope it is as good or better than the shuttle.

I have been quoted a price of $350 which I think includes shipping from Famemaster.

I saw the first pictures of the 4D cutaway Saturn V and the price will be around 170 euros.

That is super news! Looks very good except for the black roll pattern between the S-1C and the S-II stages but that can be fixed with some black paint.

OK, all of you modelers out there need to start planning for a Skylab modification to this one!

According to Google Translate:
Saturn V Cutaway Model Famemaster 2010th Scale 1:100

Saturn V Cutaway Model Famemaster 2010th Scale 1:100 After the great success with the Shuttle 3-model (praise from all sides on the outstanding quality) brings Famemaster the International Toy Fair in Hong Kong's long-awaited model of the Saturn V on the market. The model is simple zusammengsteckt. Impressive are the size specifications: diameter 10 cm, height: 1,11 m. With great insight into the inner workings of the moon rocket. The price is expected to move according to initial information in a range from 140 to 170 euros. Will tell us more specifically Famemaster early 2010. We would be very helpful if you could indicate your interest without obligation with an e-mail. E-mail us at orders@andromeda24.de. Your response helps us to gauge the interest in this model, to order a sufficient number of limited edition to be. Expected. Delivery period: Spring 2010

Does anyone know of someone that would be able to make a replica MSFC stand for this model? I have always wanted the real thing but this model will have to do and I would love a stand with the little man!

Here the first from 4D photos of the cutaway Saturn V 1/100 and more future models. I see even a Lunar Module 1/24, that must be great!
All the visitors were deeply impressed by high quailty finish 4D VISION Vehicles Cutway items. Such as our 1:72 Saturn V Rocket and 1:32 F-14 Cutway Models. We also showed the other coming soon items, like the 1:24 Apollo Lunar Module and 1:32 Apollo Command & Service Module too.

The Lunar Module looks nice! I wonder if this is a prototype since it's not painted?

According to FameMaster's website, the photos are from their booth at the 17th Hong Kong International Toys & Gifts Show held October 20-23, 2009.

So should we use the e-mail previously mentioned if we are interested in getting one, when they are released? Or was that for Europe only?

Why did I spend over a year of my life and $350 to kit bash the 1/96th Revell model? I should have waited and saved the money.

Perhaps a yard sale of my models is in order so I can buy one of these.

We are all asking this questions: Maybe that is why I pushed so hard to get a museum built.

I wonder why they didn't design the CSM and LM in compatible scales, but made them different kits?

Needed - more money and more space to put them in!

This does look exciting but would be first interested to learn how technically accurate the 1:100 (1:72?) scale model(s) are. Spending that kind of money to have what is essentially a large silhouette of the launch system encapsulating poorly replicated "guts" wouldn't be worth the space in my collection room.

I actually stopped building my 1/96 Saturn V model. This model is so much better and faster to assemble.

I am really looking forward to seeing the finished Lunar Module.

I too would be interested in the accuracy of this model and how this compares to the upcoming release of Bandai's Saturn V model.

Look at that F-1, and the LM. This is a model that begs for super-detailing.

One of the largest US distributors of Hobby products list it due 5/31 and the other lists it as early June. These dates often slip but tend to be fairly reliable. They have already slipped a little so I think early summer is possible.

As they have with the FameMaster 4D shuttle, The Space Store has said they will carry the Saturn V when it is released.

According to a French model kits web site poster and member of this forum, who has received info directly from the manufacturer, shipping date would be end of June.

I received an email directly from the manufacturer today...
Noted you are interested in the 1/100th scale Apollo Saturn V, pleased to inform you this model will be released to market around early of July. And you can purchase it from our factory directly by that time. I will inform you the expected price once available.

For almost $176 dollars less shipping cost. It looks great!

That's good news...I was expecting more than US$176 for that model, at over three and a half feet tall. I'm glad they were able to keep it in roughly the same price range as their Shuttle orbiter.

I'd rather not pay for shipping from Japan, though, so I'll probably wait and see what the Space Store will charge...They're literally right in my neighborhood
