I've just noticed an error with the Airfix kit - the location of the 1st stage engines is out by 45 degrees. I only noticed as I'm converting one to a Block 2 Saturn 1 and the engine location is tied in with the position of the S-IV LOX chilldown pipes running down between the 1st stage tanks to the stub fins.

Simple to fix - cut off the tiny locating peg on the base plate and line the outer engine position up between tanks WITHOUT the antenna panels.

I can't believe I didn't spot this when building one as SA-201 ( i.e. without removing the engine fairings )  :roll:

Cheers

Martin
