Now Playing: REM
Well I sort of nearly did it, if you accept "by the 20th" to mean "on the 20th" in the UK, and if you allow for painting and some details still be completed (like the entire LM). But anyway, I've got to the top and barring some details on the second stage, the Saturn is more or less complete externally. I've made a start on the "black bits", as we scientists call them, but here the Revell painting guides seem to be way off, so I'm referring to photographs. There's a tiny 1/96th astronaut in the command module, believe it or not, although he's all but invisible now.
More to follow tomorrow, but in the meantime here it is. The picture's crap but it's late and my camera battery's low, so this will have to do until daylight. I've been neglecting far too many commitments to get this done, and my wife says she's looking forward to seeing me again, but I've enjoyed it enormously and it's taught me far more about the mechanics of the rocket than any number of things I've read or seen in the last three or four decades. Here's to the Apollo program!
