Saturn V rocket model in Apollo to the Moon

Standing about 3.5 meters (12 feet) tall, this detailed 1/34th-scale model of the Saturn V rocket and its launch tower helps convey the mammoth size of the vehicle that sent men to the Moon. The model rocket is flyable, and the tower has motorized, moveable swing arms.
