Revell offering models for beginners and professionals
Revell has the right offer for model makers of all ages. Uncomplicated kits are the right choice for the youngest hobbyists of pre-school age. Junior Kits have been specially developed to meet the needs of children. With these models they can gain first experiences in model making and train their fine motor skills. The creative activity also strengthens the self-confidence of the little hobbyists. The colourful cars are easy to put together and can be taken apart if necessary. They are robust and can withstand one or the other collision. Playing with the matching characters is even more fun.
For thousands of years humans looked up and wondered, but it wasn't until 1969 when the Saturn V that humans finally discovered what was on the moon. The Saturn V itself was a massive rocket over three-hundred feet tall. It was designed by the same minds that had developed the V-2 to rain death on London, now bent to peaceful purposes. No space vehicle before or since has been capable of transporting humans beyond low Earth orbit. Kit features a model Saturn V with launch pad, structured surface, detailed Lunar module, three figures and full decals.

It's fun and very easy, something that you could enjoy with a son or daughter interested in engineering, space exploration, or just science in general. The pieces fit together properly, no issues. The LEM looks cool, which was something I was hoping for. Very happy with it.
Buy some basic color paints (black, green, brown, red, blue, gold), some medium to tiny brushes, some good Tamiya glue and get your Saturn V built \m/
As for the assembly process; I tried using Loctite but it was not a good idea because it sets too fast and the grey plastic parts sometimes did not join well with it. I tried using contact cement, but controlling spillage around the joined edges is extremely difficult. Finally I ended up using E6000 glue. This is thick enough to hold the tiny parts together while it sets and, since it is clear, you can clean the excess glue inmediately after joining the pieces.
For the paint job, I used white spray paint for the whole model and then tried to hand paint the black stripes. Bad idea. Even with masking tape it is impossible to paint straight edges. In desperation I ended up using black 3M electrical tape and trimming the rough edges with a sharp knife. It does look great.
Excellent display for mi engineering office!

It is interesting to see from the markings from the mounds that much of this kit was cast in 1968, meaning it was actually designed before mankind had set foot on the moon, and most of it remains unchanged! A few parts have clearly been retooled, and there were no fit issues on these.
The paint scheme is interesting, although not the one used on the Saturn V rockets that flew manned missions to the moon. The design featured in this kit was changed for the manned missions to reduce the amount of surface area painted black, as it was discovered that the black paint was overheating the fuel tanks whilst the rocket waited in the sun. If you want to recreate an manned Saturn V, you can find photographs online.
I got this kit on a marketplace deal for less that £15 as it didn't have a box, which was a steal. The kit itself was absolutely fine. Highly recommended
The box was a bit busted up but the parts inside are fine so far as I can tell.
There are resin aftermarket parts to upgrade your rocket model but the price doesn't justify the very slight difference they would make as the model is massive and it will look impressive anyway when built and painted correctly. Besides I'm not a fan of putting resin parts on plastic kits.
