Welcome to our Saturn V, Apollo DSKY & AGC 50th Anniversary scale model projects site

The Saturn V is the tallest, heaviest and most powerful rocket ever launched, and still remains the only launch vehicle to carry humans beyond low Earth orbit.  As active members of NASA Space Center Houston, we are able to frequently visit the only flight-certified hardware based Saturn V in the world.  Seeing it in person is always a “Woah”.  We would imagine the Saturn V on a launch pad, ready for launch.   What would it look like.  How impressive it must have been. 

This amazing experience and the Apollo 50th Anniversary is what inspired us to make a scaled Saturn V model, DKSY and Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC).  We created this site to track the progress of the models.  Including build video, images, tools, material, and equipment used.  We humbly welcome any, and all input on our model or site (suggestions, changes, content, etc) as we progress.  Our goal is to complete the project by end of 2018.

Our Projects

Saturn V

Saturn V with Launch Umbilical Tower (LUT)
We started the 1/96 scaled Saturn V project in January 2018. It estimate the model to be 7-8ft tall. It is printed on a Prusa i3 MK3, using Matter Hackers 1.75mm PLA filament. We are still in the build process. We hope to have it ready for the Apollo 50th Anniversary.

DSKY & AGC

DSKY (DiSplay & KeYboard) &
Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC)
Our goal is to integrate this Arduino based DSKY and AGC replica model, with our Saturn V model. Electronics and design is sourced from S&T GeoTronics LLC. Frame was printed on a Prusa i3 MK3 with 1.7fmm PLA. We are still in the build process. We hope to have it ready for the Apollo 50th Anniversary.
