Moldin' Oldies SRMO SV-1103 Solid 1/100 Apollo Capsule

$8.49

  • Model: SRMO SV1103
  • Manufactured by: Moldin Oldies by Sirius Rocketry

Upgrade that Plain 1/100 capsule on your 1/100 Scale Saturn with a more accurate representation of the Boost Protective Cover (BPC).  Created by Saturn fan David J. Miller of Sirius Rocketry, this capsule can be used with the stock escape tower from your 1:100 Saturn kit to dress up your Apollo spacecraft.  Represents the Apollo Boost Protective Cover (BPC) in flight configuration. Just use a sharp 1/16" drill bit to drill the tower leg mounts in the provided starter holes and add your stock tower, using CA or epoxy to mount the tower permanently, or leave out the glue and remove your tower when flying your model.  

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!
