PRODUCT DESCRIPTION This is a High Definition accurate scale model 'Lite' version of the Saturn V Launch Vehicle and Apollo Spacecraft that first took man around the moon in December 1968.
NB: This version of the model has no J2 engines or inner details and is configured for static display and launch only up to an altitude of approx 38 miles (where the S-1C stage breaks away).
Modeled with precision using detailed 1:48 scale blueprints and extensive photographic research spanning over a year.
Combined stages (including insulation covered F1 engines) enable realistic animation of launch only (or other general purpose uses where the full 'stack' is required). This version of the model DOES NOT support staging as no inner engine or thrust structure details of the second and third stages are included. Please purchase the complete version of this model if you require these details.
202 high resolution texture and bump maps offer down to the rivet detail. Additional high resolution decals are provided for the Service Module and BPC/LET.
Interchangeable object layers and textures enable all variations of the 10 manned Saturn Apollo missions (Apollo 8 - 17) to be built, including both old and new style insulation on the second stage and EVA handles on later CSMs.
