  • Boyce Aerospace Hobbies has created a replacement parts kit for the Cox Saturn 1B model rocket
  • There are some differences on our kit to ensure quality 3D prints:
    • The Cox logo is not on the service module
    • There are no panel lines on the service module
    • The escape tower is built for strength and differs slightly from than original
    • There are panel lines on the LEM shroud and the capsule to simulate the boost protective cover
  • Our kit includes 4 3D-printed ABS plastic parts
  • Tower and escape motor require assembly with super glue
  • As with all 3D printed kits, these require minor sanding prior to paint
  • Weighs 1.5 oz
  • Measures 8.5 inches in length

You asked, and we listenedyou can now purchase replacement parts for the Cox Saturn 1B model rocket. However, there are some changes to facilitate 3D printing. There is no Cox logo on the service module, no panel lines on the service module, the escape tower is built differently but is stronger (and looks great when completed). You’ll also see panel lines on the LEM shroud and on the capsule to simulate the boost protective cover. As with all our 3D printed kits, the modeler will need to wet/dry sand the model and primer it to achieve a glass smooth painting surface. The modeler will also have to assemble the tower and escape motor parts with super glue. The kit comes in 4 parts and is printed in white ABS plastic. We suggest drilling a small hole in the joint between the service module and LEM shroud and running a piece of Kevlar cord unto the model to be secured as the recovery cord. That way you can use 2 chutes for recovery and protect the escape tower from damage. A slot has been provided in the shoulder to allow the cord to enter the lower half of the rocket without binding. As the capsule and tower are separate from the CSM and LEM shroud it is easy to add nose weight via epoxy into the base of the capsule if needed.

Boyce Aerospace Hobbies recommends hobbyists under the age of 13 be supervised by an adult at all times.
