Here is my finished Saturn IB model. It's not museum quality, but I'm quite happy with it.

Thanks for your kind comments. It gives me encouragement to build somemore. It was just a basic Airfix 1:144 kit I've had lying around for several years.

I found the escape tower to be a bit fiddly, but otherwise a pretty good kit. I also used a wooden plinth base for a better finish.
