Model, Rocket, Saturn I, 1:48

     

This is a 1:48 Scale model of the the Saturn 1, the first of the three Saturn launch vehicles built for the Apollo program. A two-stage liquid-fuel rocket, it was originally called the Saturn C-1 and then renamed Saturn 1 in 1963. Although the National Aeronautics and Space Administration had plans at that time to use the rocket for manned Apollo orbital missions, these were subsequently dropped. Instead, the Saturn 1 launched five Apollo boilerplate command and service modules during 1964-1965 to help qualify the spacecraft for manned flight. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center made this model and transferred it to NASM in 1972.
