Default Airfix Saturn Ib to be released in 2010...

Airfix had announced the rerelease of this much wanted kit. It will have the newly corrected Apollo spacecraft parts.

Also, the Vostok will be released.

They also list a Saturn V Skylab version with a new third stage. No word on if it actually can be used to depict Skylab in orbit or not.

More as it becomes available....

Very cool news. My guess is that the Skylab version would be just the shroud, but I will live in false hope that a kit (albeit on the small size) might be released of the station in earth orbit. Hey it's Santa Claus season, so I might as well dream !

Default Re: Airfix Saturn Ib to be released in 2010...

I just checked and the third stage molding will be replaced with a new one which will have all the features of the orbital workshop in the stowed launch config. The aft end will be replaced with the parts to make it look like the workshop, so no J-2.

The shroud will be in two halves but no front end (docking hardware, ATM, etc) will be included. But it's a start!!

So we are getting a new Saturn V kit with the Skylab payload.

Default Re: Airfix Saturn Ib to be released in 2010...

Thanks for the update. Yes, it is a start. Seems like someone at Airfix at least has put their thinking cap on and has come up with a way to maximize their 40+ year old Saturn tooling.

So now we have a corrected CSM and LEM Shroud for both the Saturn V and 1B and options for a Skylab launch version of the Saturn V with corrected SIV B and Skylab Shroud.

With this approach, wouldn't a new tool 1/48th CSM have great possibilities ? You could issue the CSM, then add the LM (ala Revell's Old Apollo Spacecraft set). You could then expand to an SIV B stack, then modify the stack to be SkyLab with a docked CSM. And you would pay for the tooling only - no royalties to some aerospace or car company as is required for many kits these days.

I can dream can't I ?

Default Re: Airfix Saturn Ib to be released in 2010...

Thanks for posting that Refit,that's some cool news in my book!
I'd be keen on getting both the 1b and also the Skylab Saturn V.
I might just have to save one of the new release Saturn V's i got for a later time now and display em all together.Even though the corrected part's in these kit's isn't what some of the SS builders are looking for,as a display piece and what it's intended to be,they will be much more authentic to look at now.

Default Re: Airfix Saturn Ib to be released in 2010...

Refit,

From what you've heard, this will have the same parts as this last released Sat V, correct?

In other words, there will be changes, but we'll still have several needed pieces of "old" for replicating replicas?

Rob.

Default Re: Airfix Saturn Ib to be released in 2010...

Only parts associated with the spacecraft will be changed. That includes the CM, SM, SLA and the BPC which is the outer cone the LES attaches too.

Ok, confused by my acronyms?

I know that the Service Module top (round piece with four bumps) will probably be absent. The SLA (big cone that is used on the engines for Y-wings and such) will be gone.

All the other pieces should be there.

I am not an expert on Eagle use of kit parts though.

Default Re: Airfix Saturn Ib to be released in 2010...

Not at all!

I think I caught most of those acronyms as I'm fairly up on such things.

If I recall correctly,

CM=Cake Machine
SM=Star Maker
SLA=Sun Light Adapter
and
BPC=Big Phat Corkscrew

Not really an "Eagle" kit parts kit as much as a "HAWK" kit parts kit!

Isn't the "Star Maker" top used as a detail on the top of the leg pods of the Eagle Transporter ?

LOL!!!

Really....Rob works or worked at NASA?

Yeah the SM "top" under the CM is on the leg pod. One of the few things I know about the Eagles. I do see quite a bit of stuff on the Hawk, fur sur.
