::::sigh:::
Jetboy your efforts with these models is truely uplifting...
 
However...
 
I'm afraid I can no londer remain silent on the obvious inaccuracies and issues that are incorperated within these models...
 
I can not help but notice that you are using "NASA-White#2477" as the base color and I'm sure you aware this was replaced with "NASA-White#2501" in 1963 so as a color scheme for "advanced" Saturn boosters it is totally inappropriate!
 
While you are using the proper shade of black (NASA-Black#444) I note that the shade of red you are using (Gov-Spec#3096) which was used only on the pre-production Jupiter missiles and never used on the Saturn series. Worse I'm afraid is the quite obvious mistake of using Gov-Spec#109b Orange on the solid rocket boosters when it should be MIL-Spec#901g!
 
Really! I am both amazed and dissapointed that a modeler such as yourself would resort to these kind of shortcuts!
 
Eh... Nahhh, who am I kidding? (You I hope :) ) They are fantstic as usual! I notice its been several hours since those were posted, are the rest done yet? :)
