Moldin' Oldies SRMO SV-1102 Solid 1:100 Apollo Capsule/LES

$13.95

  • Model: SRMO SV1102
  • Manufactured by: Moldin Oldies by Sirius Rocketry

Can't tell you how many escape towers I have destroyed on my Saturn V's over the years. Seems the delicate tower is the first to go.

This is a brand new 2009 version created by Sirius Rocketry's David J. Miller with BRAND NEW accurate Boost Protective Cover detail and crisper molding than the SRMO SV1101 original.

This set contains the capsule/escape tower casting only.

The photo below shows the improved version with improved detail (right) along with the "Stock" version.

 

 

 

 

This tower replaces the brittle tower assembly on various 1/100 scale Saturns with a more durable, wire-reinforced tower. 

A note about Moldin' Oldies polyurethane castings:

While quite strong, these castings are just a bit "softer" than plastic parts. If sanding is necessary, they do sand beautifully. These parts have all of the detail of the originals but they may not have all of the strength in the shock cord attachment loop, or the loop may have been eliminated from the casting to prevent it being used for shock cord attachment. You may want to consider alternate methods of attaching shock chords and parachutes, just to be safe.

They should be finished with enamel based primers and paints. (Lacquers don't work too well and should probably be avoided.) These parts are also resistant to solvents so typical plastic cement or plastic welder will not work on them. Epoxy (like the Bob Smith epoxy that we offer) is ideal for these parts.

Lists of old kits that used this cone can be found at Scott Hansen's Ye Olde Rocket Shoppe, a fantastic rocket builder's reference!
