Apollo 11 Saturn V Rocket, Plastic Kit 1/96 scale.
Plastic kit of the famous Saturn V Moon rocket. As old as the Moon landing, but still a great model with some clues. For example thetanks are made from PS-sheets that will be rolled up. The model is printed and all stages can be seperated. One of the finest and largest models of its kind. Unfortunately Revell still ows us the launch tower.
