PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
This is a High Definition digital 3D model of an F-1 engine used on the Saturn V first stage to launch man into earth orbit and onward to the moon. (NB: THIS IS NOT A REAL PHYSICAL MODEL)

Manufactured by the Rocketdyne division of North American Aviation, the F-1 remains to this day the most powerful rocket engine yet built. It is a single start engine producing 1,500,000 pounds of fixed thrust, via the biopropellant mixture of RP-1 kerosene and liquid oxygen, which equates to approximately 32 million bhp.

Although now over 50 years old, current research and development into an F-1B upgrade may see the engine yet again take mankind aloft in years to come.

Historically used solely on the Saturn V launch vehicle, the F-1 could also serve as a general purpose engine for 3D modelers interested in designing more futuristic or fantasy spacecraft.

NB: This configuration of the F-1 engine was used on all flight versions of the Saturn V first stage beginning with the unmanned Apollo 4 (AS-501) in November 1967. Earlier research and development and test versions depicted in many photos have different types of high pressure fuel lines (straight rather than U shaped) as well as other minor variations.

Modeled with precision using detailed 1:48 scale blueprints, schematic diagrams and extensive photographic research.

High resolution texture/UV maps (colour and bump) accurately depict all engine bell surface corrugation details as well as each of the individual holes on the combustion chamber's fuel injector plate.

The download ZIP file contains 3 versions of the F1 engine:
1 - Flight version (although rarely depicted in photographs the 5 installed F1 engines were covered with asbestos blankets and foil batt insulation to protect against the massive temperatures of launch).
2 - Display/museum version
3 - Display version with upper cage for attachment of foil batt insulation

Modeled with Lightwave 9.6

USAGE
