About this creation
Yes, this is a Saturn V recolor /
MOD. No, I'm not crazy, and yes, this can be built in real life!

This model was recreated in LDD by Eurobricks user Stephan, which I then took and recolored in my red and gray color-scheme. I also added the opening cockpit from my older rocket model along with the two astronaut figures and one robot.

NOTE: Some parts would not fit on the rocket according to Stephan, and are left to the side in the LDD file. They are hidden in the pictures, but they are there, so be alert when building in real life. You have been warned!



The rocket by itself.



The model still separates into sections, but the top most one of these has been replaced, thus reducing the segments to three.



The cockpit still opens, and as usual should feature this print: www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=47543pb05...



The rear of the rocket features five engines, the middle section a smaller bank of five thrusters, while the cockpit section has one singular engine.



The height of the Saturn V dwarfs the smaller rocket of the previous design.

(The older model is NOT in the LDD file!)



The robot is inspired by the robot customer in the 2007 set number 4981 (another Spongebob set called The Chum Bucket), while the astronauts were inspired by the Sandy Cheeks mini-figure in set 3831.

Quoting Scott Bourgeois Cool, but I'm not shelling out $120.00 USD for the set. I'ma save my big spends on trains and Power Function stuff. :) Nice mod! Do it up in NNF colors. ;) Bob needs a new ride, LOL
i'm not buying this anytime soon either, it's just too much at once. right now I'm trying to part out a five car train + steam loco and hoping it'll be under $100... the wheels might push me over that though!
