1:200 scale, interesting. I think I have a Hasegawa 1:200 space shuttle kit in my stash. I mean, I like having more same scales on display, for sake of simple comparison.

Would be nice to see some WIP photos of this build. :) I never got around to get this kit myself.

I bought the kit last year in memory of the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing in 1969, with the idea of making it in the jubilee year. But other things got in the way. It is not the anniversary kit though. I didn't even know there was one (Revell 03704 scale 1:96). I'm making pictures so I'll probably post an album.

It needs some different skills and repetitive tasks but it's well worth the result. If you have any problems at all, just email the artist and he replies immediately. Highly recommended.

My son and I just got the set as a gift, and thought we'd give it shot. I didn't see recommended paints in the instructions. I don't suppose you remember the colors you used, or was their a color scheme that was supposed to be in the box, that we missed?
4. April 2018, 22:46
T.C. Bradley
Wow, I've been away from Scalemates for quite a while now. The answer about the color: in addition to the simple black and white, I used a medium gray to represent the bare metal areas. I use Vallejo acrylics, I don't remember the exact gray I used on these.

JOHN THOMAS
Very nice work. I have the same kit and well get to it some day. I have found a 1:200 scale shuttle that I am going to add to my display. BTW, I grow up only a few miles from the Space Center. My dad worked at the NASA HQ building for many years. I have see all of the early man space shots many from my front lawn of down on the beach and also seen many of the Shuttles launches as well. T.C. if you go to my Albums I have an album of the early rockets you are building at the NASA Visitor Center including the Saturn 1B.

Here's a look at two illustration panels from the box of Revell's original 1969 release of their 1/96 scale Saturn V.

The front of the box is on the left, while one of the side panels appears on the right. When this kit was released in 1969 it sold for (US)$12. That would be about $77 in 2014 dollars.

Along with the innovative method of assembly that Revell engineered for this kit they also came up with a novel box. The box was all one piece and served as a carrying and storage case. There was no separate top and bottom. A plastic carrying handle was attached on one of the side panels.

My built Saturn V kit ended up in this box and survives to this day. It spent many years (decades!) in the attic of my parent's house. I finally rescued it in the early 2000s.

How cool is that?!? I built one of the original kits back in the day, when I was MUCH younger, and always regretted not keeping it. As I recall, I cut what seemed like 20,000 acres of neighbor's yards for this one...
Very, very nice.

Thanks, Charles.....I see one for sale local, looks mint but I can't justify spending $100.00 on a kit right now.... :(
