Wow, this is awesome! To scale, elegant, and with perfect color changes (I also would like to know how you got your lines that straight upwards in the color changes). Great work!

 Cheesy I'm glad you guys like the Saturn V!!

To answer the question about the vertical stripes: I worked in successive rows, not spiral rounds. Every row starts with a Ch 1 and ends with a slip stitch into the first Ch 1. That way, the stripes work out nice and straight.

I'm a big fan of the Saturn V, especially since it's practically the icon of the city I live in. We have a life sized replica that is the tallest thing in the city.... you can practically see it from everywhere.

Love it! Love it! Love it!

(also my grandfather worked for NASA for many many many years, and I know he would have loved your replica)

Wow! That's so amazing! Thank you for sharing.
