Once again, Estes has brought back the famous Saturn V! This famed rocket was the first vehicle to send man to the moon and is one of the finest 1:100th scale models kits ever produced. Scaled from official NASA drawings, the finished model is 43.25 inches tall and lifts off to about 350 feet on a E30-4 composite motor.

We have updated every plastic part in this kit and you won’t be disappointed! Accurate Apollo II body wraps, detailed blow molded transition, easier to assemble escape tower, injection molded fins and highly detailed removable display nozzles that doubles as a stand.

FOR A LIMITED TIME, WHILE WE CELEBRATE THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF SENDING MAN TO THE MOON, WE’VE INCLUDED A “BONUS!” Check back often for more details about this soon to be released kit.

5 reviews for 001969 – Saturn V (1:100th scale)

  1. Tom

    This kit was a lot fun to build. Marcelo’s suggestion (his review dated 3/10/2019) was a winner. I added additional balsa at the base of The fins to compensate the difference and it worked great.

  2. Mike Rindos

    Oops forgot to add: It’s a excellent kit. Recommend Starbond Ca Medium Think Super Glue. Or Starbond EM 2000 thick Super Glue.

  3. Mike Rindos

    The E12-4 engine isn’t the standard first flight. Its D12-3. I also found out when I first launched it.The cones that holds the fins in place came down in pieces. I had to reinforce the cones with rocket body tubing for the fins. So I recommend to cut out a design of the cone from a body tube and glue it to the cone itself.(Make sure it fits and the hole that the fin goes into it.

    Just received, my Saturn V 50th Anniversary edition. 1st was very impressed with packaging, all parts were either bagged or protected from shipping damage in the box. Instructions are clear, and easy to follow. For my building sequence, started with motor mount, and then moved onto Command module construction while waiting for glue to dry in other steps. Plastic for capsule & escape tower went together perfectly! So far this model has been a pleasure to build. Will launch on July 16th anniversary.

    Excellent kit. Comes with four cubes of clay – but you only need two. I recommend glueing the fins to the body for added strength. Then secure vacuum wrap on top of fin.
