Quality and detail is excellent. I love the Saturn Series of boosters and this kit has plenty of detail to start but allows the builder to add more detail to represent specific historic vehicles. I am sanding the parts now getting ready for paint. Test fitting proved the parts are right on. This is going to be an epic build.
Probably the most fun I have had in building a rocket. I absolutely love this particular design. Was extremely simple to build, yet includes some complex features hard to find with other rockets. Overall build-time was under 2 days! The Saturn 1 SA-5 offered through Boyce Aerospace Hobbies is truly one of a kind and impossible to find anywhere else. Solid flight! The chutes fit into a very small area, so be prepared for some careful packing. Go ahead and paint the tip bright red along with the other key features that will set this one apart and make it one of your favorites!
I was surprised how nice the quality of the components were. All parts fit together nicely with the specified body tubes. In all a fine model.
I appreciate the quality of this kit and others that I purchased from you. (I also purchased the Little Joe I and II kits). Shipping was fast and the protective packing assured a safe arrival. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I do not see any "gotcha" issues. The Saturn painting addendum clearly eliminated one. I look forward to adding them to my collection.
This kit is amazing and finishes easier that expected. The quality of the parts is amazing and the us of standard tubes makes paining and finishing a lot easier. Great looking addition to the Saturn line and looks awesome . Well worth the money.
