Dragon Models 1:72 Aerospace Program 50392
Douglas Saturn V Rocket Display Model
NASA, Skylab 1 , Launch May 14th, 1973

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Douglas Saturn V Rocket   60.5"   5.5"

This model depicts the Saturn V used to launch Skylab into space. Skylab was the USA’s first space station and it orbited the Earth from 1973-79. It included a workshop, solar observatory (Apollo Telescope Mount) and other elements. The unmanned Skylab was launched by a modified Saturn V rocket on 14 May 1973, the last launch by this type of rocket. The station was actually severely damaged during launch but the first crew managed to make repairs. Skylab reentered earth’s atmosphere in 1979 and disintegrated.

Saturn V was the longest, heaviest and most powerful rocket ever produced, with the original standing 110.6m high and having a 10.1m diameter. As impressive as the real Saturn rocket system was, this Space Collection item will draw gasps of astonishment too! The monstrous 1:72 scale rocket comes with brand new tooling for parts like the terminal stage, as this element has a different appearance to previous Saturn Vs. All the relevant detail is carefully reproduced and the completed model comes with accurate painting and markings. The Saturn V is suitable for display as it comes with a stable circular base to allow it to stand on the floor. Collectors seeking something special, or those wanting another Saturn V variant, will be impressed with this fantastic model!

Douglas Saturn V Rocket

Designed for the Apollo program at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, the Saturn V was first launched on November 9th, 1967. After two unmanned flight trials the Saturn V launched astronauts into lunar orbit in 1968, then in 1969 powered the first manned moon landing. The Saturn V's huge size and payload capacity dwarfed all other previously successful rockets. The Saturn V stood 363 feet tall and without fins was 33 feet in diameter with a payload capacity of 260,000 pounds. Its five powerful engines successfully pushed its 6.5 million pounds beyond the earth's atmosphere.
