Dragon Wings Model 1:72 Saturn V DRW 50388
RELEASE DATE: April 2020
SERIES: 1/72 Space Crafts & Launch Vehicles
Dragon has an extensive variety of finished models in its space range, and they’ve always been popular with collectors and space aficionados. One of the most popular, and certainly one of the most spectacular, items was a 1/72 scale replica of a Saturn V rocket from NASA. It sold out swiftly when it was launched onto the market, and the same occurred with several model reproductions in later years. Now it’s time for the Saturn V to launch one more time!
The fully built-up model stands an incredible 1.5m tall. All relevant detail is carefully reproduced on the three rocket stages, and the completed model comes with an accurate paint scheme and requisite markings. This Saturn V rocket is very suitable for display at home as a centerpiece of any space fan’s collection. It even comes with a stable circular base to allow it to be freestanding on the floor. Impress and be impressed with this fantastic model from Dragon!
As the longest, heaviest and most powerful rocket ever produced, the original Saturn V stood 110.6m high and had a diameter of 10.1m. The Saturn V was at the heart of NASA’s Apollo and Skylab programs between 1967 and 1973. It was able to launch a 45-tonne payload into space beyond Low Earth Orbit. A total of 13 Saturn V launches took place, every one of them a success, and they safely delivered 24 astronauts to the Moon.
As impressive as the real Saturn rocket system is, viewers of this Space Collection item from Dragon will cause jaws to drop and draw gasps of astonishment! While the model makes use of the Command/Service Module (CSM) and Launch Escape System produced earlier, the rest of this monstrous 1/72 scale rocket comes from brand new toolings. All the relevant detail is carefully reproduced on the three rocket stages, and the completed model comes with accurate painting and markings. The Saturn V is most suitable for display at home as a centerpiece of any space fan’s collection. It comes with a stable circular base to allow it to be freestanding on the floor. Impress and be impressed with this fantastic model!
