Thanks to all for the interest.

After that my design of the third stage was satisfactory about the shape, I tried to do a color test, to see how the texture could render and which solution would I apply to the entire stack.

Here the first test in Inkscape …



… and here the first test build



On the stack



The wings



And the prototype at good stage of completion




To be continue ….

I agree this is Awesome. I saw a picture of this rocket sitting on the launch pad and the paint scheme was done like the real Saturn V. It looks so good painted like that. I have look and look on the net trying to find that picture but have had no luck.

By any chance are you going to do this rocket in a couple different paint schemes?

You might like watching this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kve-CQvHen4

It's a video of the host from the Youtube channel "Vintage Space" collaborating with a friend trying to get a Von Braun style rocket into orbit using Kerbal Space Program.

If you like the Mercury/Gemini/Apollo era, it's a very entertaining and informative channel.

Oh I love Amy. She's got a lot of good stuff about the early days of spaceflight.

PhantomCruiser, panzerlite, Paper Kosmonaut, thanks for your kind comments. I hope you’ll enjoy my model, if I could complete it!

The Mole, I know what you are talking about, but I choose to represent the rocket in the paint scheme they thought. The Saturn scheme is too “modern”

Mechanic, PhantomCruiser, I know Amy and her channel and I follow her on Youtube from long time. I’m passionate for the early manned space flight (see my little Mercury, Vostock, LM and Gemini ) and I saw all her serie. I discovered this interesting simulator ( the Kerbal Space Program ) just here, looking for some video about the Ferry Rocket.

At this point, with the prototyping phase almost completed, I can start to finalize the version of each part, experimenting the better way to render the patterns of colors.

I decided to start from the bottom to the top, so I began from the MLP. I would like to reproduce the base as depicted in the Klep’s illustration, but giving some weathered aspect. The rest of the rocket never flew.

The first attempts, looking for a way to do in Inkscape a weathered effect, are very ugly, so I discarded them.



Then I choose an image of the top of the true MLP and I corrected and adapted it in Gimp. Then I “clipped” it in Inkscape. This time the result was acceptable. So I started to build the MLP.





But the platform could have be bare without any detail that could give the sense of the “real” dimensions.

So I thought to reproduce the tail-masts of the Saturn era, some worker who walks around, and a touch of color with two containers.






A dry fit



Now the base is complete!




That’s all for now. I’m working on the first stage.

Stay tuned.
Best, Nando
