Indeed it is Johni, unfortunately its a very old build and I never got around to photographing models in those days, but there is a little bit more of it on this thread as it seemed in context.

4D, so sorry with being so late with this post (On hiatus for a while with modeling) but your big 3 (as well as the two concept rockets) are all just so amazing and really awesome. Great paint work on these really large models! :clap: :clapping:

Saturns Rule!!! :nod:

Thanks Saturn5Tony. Have a look at some of the other rocketry and space builds on the site. They are excellent.
