Boyce Aerospace Hobbies recommends hobbyists under the age of 13 be supervised by an adult at all times.
These 1:100 Apollo capsules are very nice - the quality of the 3D printing is the best I’ve seen, the surface texture lines are much thinner than other 3D rocketry parts I’ve bought. Didn’t even bother sanding them, a nice coat of paint, and unnoticeable from a foot away. The recesses for gluing in the LES nozzles were a perfect fit, needing just a tiny drop of CA. The inside of the main cone is mostly open for adding nose weight, and there’s a long shoulder, which I used for attaching with 2 tiny nylon machine screws. I didn’t need the cross brace since my SV breaks lower down, but it should help with durability.
I got this because I broke my Estes tower kit and wouldn’t you know it, I dropped this one from the height of 6 feet but it snapped cleanly...CA’d right back into place. Looks good as new! It is much stronger, more detailed and better quality than the Estes capsule.
Love this little capsule. So much better than the Estes version!
I would highly recommend this kit as a great in flight replacement capsule set for your 1/100 scale Saturn 1’s; 1B and Saturn V. It will make your rockets near break proof in this area and also provide a awesome Anchor for the recovery system and the price is good to boot. When I ordered my Saturns, I personal order two extra for my other Saturn 1b and Saturn V.
