This is a heavy paper UNBUILT model craft kit of NASA's Apollo Saturn V Rocket
Launch Umbilical Tower
(LUT) with Mobile Launcher Platform in 1:110 scale. The rocket is not included. LUT is not built. Intended for any 1:110 scale Saturn V model. The LUT 1:110 is an accurate, generic model so it may need to be adjusted where the Lego 1:110 Saturn V does not meet to original Saturn V designs, notably its fins and LM Adapter, which are of different design than the actual article.

The build Procedures call for use of approx. 1/4" corrugated cardboard, glued aback of the outer skin on load bearing surfaces creating a strong, laminated effect. It bears up well under load.

PLEASE NOTE: The LEGO Saturn V is not precisely modeled after NASA's actual, real Saturn V rocket, so please anticipate the need for some adjusting of's generic LUT 1:110, as it is designed true to NASA's actual Apollo Launch Umbilical Tower. The Lego Saturn V will need to be secured to the LUT to avoid mishaps when bumped. We would recommend using trace white-glue at the base (removable) and/or earthquake securing putty or the like... Some of the builders make use of clear plastic bands (from common product packaging or other household sources) secured around the rocket mid-section and to the LUT for additional bump contingencies. The Edu-Craft*Diversions LUT is intended for static display, and not for playing. Some industrious modellers actually install high powered magnets into the Launch Platform and rocket to secure it...

This heavy PAPER (60 lbs. test) model kit includes:

  • 1 set of 38 quantity 11"x17" color laser 60 lbs. test, paper stock, parts sheets .
  • 1 CD containing the 90 page Assembly Procedure Manual in PDF file.

The heavy paper (60 lbs.) is tested and deemed best for precision and other factors. After gluing, laminating, folding and assembly, it bears up strongly.

The Procedures Manual calls for a corrugated cardboard substrate which is glued to load bearing surfaces. It forms a laminated surface which bears well under expected loads.

APOLLO CRAWLER TRANSPORTER is also available separately, along with all of our other neat items...

NOTE: The rocket sits atop the launcher and is held in place by gravity, some tactile resistance from the 4 hold-downs (support mounts), and swingarm contact. Unless it is bumped, it should stay safely mounted. The kit is generic to any 1:110 scale Saturn V model. If further securing of the rocket is desired, the builder (you) would be called upon to implement a hold-down application specific to the model brand.
