I have both a Centuri Saturn IB model and an Estes Saturn IB, both are nice models but require a lot of work to get an acceptable model. The Boyce Saturn IB is more accurate, easier to build and presents you with a really superior model. I am slowing buying the entire Boyce Saturn I family. Great kits.
This was a great kit to build. I do think one thing the instructions don't mention is that there are two pairs of different types of antennas, and you should look at a reference picture when glueing those on to make sure it matches where that antenna should be. The one major difficulty I had with this kit were the decals. There were good instructions for them included. The long single piece "United States" decals on the fuel tanks were a breeze, the trouble was with the USA decals. On all four sets of USA decals, only one of the three letters peeled off the backing fully and was able to adhere to the kit. I glued the other letters on and it still looks fine though. Overall Im beyond pleased with this kit, the 3D printed fin can was very sturdy and was a perfect fit for the cardboard tubes! Other parts have an amazing level of detail and needed minimal to no sanding. Excited to take it out for its first flight!
A great addition to my redstone, atlas and gemini titan scratch builds. An S1B was a bit over my ability for a scratch...this kit fits the bill! Quality decals, good instructions and superb component fits. Only suggestion is on the next version, please supply the correct antenna panel lengths, 2 shorts, 2 longs. Thanks Boyce for a beautiful kit!
Still on the shelf but looks wonderful .. thanks
This is mostly the highest detailed 1/100 Saturn 1B ever marketed! The craftmanship is awesome! I love the idea of using BT-19 body tubes in the first stage, makes painting and finishing the model so much easier and all with the added bonus of less weight. This is by far a better kit and the fin area is superior in strength as compared to any other 1/100 scale Saturn 1B ever marketed. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone that has ever wanted to own a 1/100 Scale Saturn 1B but didn't want to pay the out of this world prices for a oops Estes or Centuri kit on ebay.
