This is my new resin kit to convert the Airfix Saturn 1B into the proposed Saturn C-2 launcher. Prior to the selection of the Lunar Orbit Rendezvous mission mode, the C-2 was planned to be used to assemble a lunar lander in Earth orbit, and to send an early lightweight version of the Apollo spacecraft ( Apollo-A ) around the moon. It was cancelled in favour of the larger C-3 ( kit coming soon  :wink:  ) before that in turn was cancelled when the C-5/Saturn V was selected. It uses the 1st stage and some other parts from the Airfix kit, the rest is resin.

The small one at the back is a Saturn INT-20, the big one at the front is a C-8
