If you got the money, you can buy resin detail sets from Martin's Models, otherwise your only choice seems to be to source photos from the net and books and do your own scratch building of the missing detail.

I thoroughly recommend Martin's resin parts- you can find how to make the 1st stage engines more accurate on the Saturn V reference page

Thanks for the tips, when I was scouring ebay for my saturn v I noticed these but just turned them away because I didn't know what they were but now I'm considering getting them.

There is a very detailed build on the Revell kit here which might give you some ideas.

I'v built my Saturn rocket but there are gray marks over the outside and my white paint just looks, well, too yellow on it.Does any one know of any paints that are perfect white?
