1/96 Saturn V – Revell

May 12, 2021 · in Space · · 18 · 2.8K

Hi, finally finished kit from in scale. I tried my best. It is not perfect and there are small differences with original rocket but Iam ok with it. Now it will be nice piece of decoration ?

Smoke is pet bottle wrapped around with led stipe, some leds I paint transparent yellow and red paint , literally only separate leds, randomly but on top i let it be white, in middle orange, bottom red and then cotton wool glue on it. Cotton then is painted just a little bit with grey shades from middle to bottom. It is no magic ? simple and easy.

Anyway the kit is from previous century so quality is ... just Revell 😀

I hope you will like it 😉

  1. Very impressive build, Radek.
    Really love the way you present that exhaust effect.
    You described it as being simple, but I think it is much more than that.
    Wonderful decoration.

  3. What John said... That is a very cool piece of decor, and I can think of more than a few people who would love to have such a piece on display.

  4. Congralations Radek!
    This is a wonderful result and I just LOVE the exhaust fumes!

    Only improvement I can come up with is some dry ice at the bottom shelf to have smoke come pouring out of the cabinet 🙂

  17. That is absolutely brilliant! The most effective way I have ever seen for displaying this rocket. I can almost hear the roar and crackle of the exhaust!
