Saturn V Skylab Kit (Estes)


Price: $109.99 each


The Estes Saturn V Skylab is an accurate 1:100 scale reproduction of this historic rocket and its space station payload. Vacuum formed tube wraps and fin fairings add a textured realism to this model’s surface. Injection molded fins are both durable and detailed – a fin alignment guide is included for precise placement. The detailed water-slide decals accurately represent the markings of this historic mission. Before flight, remove the realistic engine nozzle assembly and prep for launch. At ejection, the rocket separates into two sections for recovery – the Saturn V first and second stages return together under dual 24-inch parachutes, while the Skylab upper section sports its own 18-inch canopy. With impressive launches and multi-segment, multi-parachute recoveries, the Estes Saturn V Skylab will stand out in any model rocket fleet!
