This is a High Definition model of Swing Arm number 6 (S-IVB Aft) used to fuel and service the Saturn Apollo and Skylab S-IVB stage launches between 1967 and 1973.
This swing arm has been built to accurately align with both my Saturn Apollo and Saturn Apollo Lite models allowing close up rendering of the iconic launch scene where the umbilical connections break away and the arm retracts (without the need to purchase the whole Apollo Mobile Launcher product). It can also be used as a generic service arm to connect other launch towers to rockets of a fiction based nature.
Modelled with precision using the original architect's scaled drawings, along with extensive photographic and video research.
Modelled with LightWave 9.6
Suitable for HD video, high-res film close-ups and print
Model contains the following: 4 object layers (including interchangeable extension platform) 79001 polygons 67601 quads, 11400 tris, and 0 ngons Standard Lightwave materials & texture maps

Model built to real-world scale Units used: Feet and Inches. Swing Arm is approx 48 feet long.
Pivot points and morph targets are preset in Layout file for umbilical release mechanisms and arm retractions shown in animated preview files and downloadable videos. 'Swing Arm 6 SA aligned.lwo' model is set up to exactly align with the Saturn Apollo launch vehicle. The arm is also available as a separate standalone model (with morphs set) to be repositioned as required when matched to other launch vehicle scenes. Separate morph target layers/models are also available for the FBX and OBJ products to allow morphs to be setup in other 3D programs
Fully compatible with my Saturn Apollo models (NOT INCLUDED)
