Now Playing: Bryan Adams
One week on - and not much to show for it, truth to tell. I was premature in thinking that I was nearly done with the S1C, for in fact there was quite a bit more to it, and I've only made a start on the painting of the black patches.
What you can see here is the entire S1C, the interstage ring and the start of the S11 stage.
I'm still fairly confident of finishing this thing by the 20th, but most of the progress will be in the last week, and there may still be a few bits to paint.
The quality of the kit notwithstanding, the Revell instructions (obviously translated from the German) could do with some tweaking. The accompanying notes tell us that the Saturn V reached a speed of 112 km/s (think you might have dropped a decimal point there, guys) and that Neil Armstrong's first words on the Moon were:
"This is only one small step for a man but a great leap forward for mankind."
So now you know, future historians.
