    Revell 50th Anniversary 1/144 Saturn V Rocket (Complete)

    Calling this complete, stoked how the mods and details turned out, also pleased with the extra effort I put into the platform as it looked kind of bare and boring with just the three tiny figures that come with the kit, I think the addition of the towers help give the rocket a good sense of...

    Revell 50th Anniversary 1/144 Saturn V Rocket (Complete)

    On the home run with this build, just had to order in some transparent decal sheet as I only had white backing, plus the usual stages of paint drying times and gloss coats are time consuming. My inkjet settings were all over the place and I wasted a sheet during a trial print run, oh well, I...

    Revell 50th Anniversary 1/144 Saturn V Rocket (Complete)

    Last bit of details added to the base, the flared panels on the lower section of the three towers and the cables that connects to the side of the rocket, I used copper wire so it would stay in place. Time for some primer. :cool:

    Revell 50th Anniversary 1/144 Saturn V Rocket (Complete)

    Completed the final two sections of paint work on stage 2 and it's connecting ring... the tapered section was hell to mask, getting the line straight was a pain in the ass but I got there, as for stage 2 I use a combination of masking tape and liquid frisket. Once the paint has set dry...

    Revell 50th Anniversary 1/144 Saturn V Rocket (Complete)

    Seems I've exhausted all my white paint as I had used the whole jar already, oh well. Meanwhile whilst I wait for my order of paint to be delivered, I test fitted the rocket to it's display base, lucky I did as without any forced effort one of the plastic pins snapped right off as I was bending...

    Retired and looking for another hobby.

    Welcome to the forums and welcome back to the hobby, I'm sure the members here that are into the genre will point you towards the proper channels to acquiring kits, tools and paints to get you back into the hobby, as you've probably noticed the many tools and modelling resources have changed...

    My 3D printing adventures so far...

    I was thinking of investing in a small 3D printer to aid in my hobby, if I owned one my mediocre scratch building would most probably take a backseat lol. Is yours a resin printer? I read somewhere that resin prints smoother with higher details than the filament printers but I don't know if...
