1.18 metres high. Interestingly it should be 1.15 m tall (363 feet) in 1/96 so I don’t know where the extra 3 cm comes from! :roll:

Fantastic!

Wasn't Saturn V awesome?

This model is awesome too, mate!

What a beautiful sight!

I suppose it would cost a fortune, but I've often thought wouldn't it be great if Revell or Airfix for their Saturn V produced a seperate launch gantry to put the Saturn V model on?  And perhaps three Astronaut figures to show walking across the platform to the Command module - carrying their portable oxygen units!

I guess it will only ever be a dream, but that would be very impressive!

Being new here I haven´t seen this. (I´m still looking through all the great stuff here) It looks VERY impressive. Incredible, the size of it :shock:
What did the neighbours think with that sticking up over the fence ?   :)
