Not two, but three Saturn 1B's appeared at Red Glare

Events not to be discussed here prevented me from attending Red Glare IX.  However, my rocket buddy Warthog promised to send photos for me to post.  He reported that Steve Eves 1:9 scale model was standing majestically on its gantry.  Vern Hoag's was there too, less paint.  In addition, Steve had a 1:27 scale 1B to test out the staging and fin deployment mechanisms on the big one. MDRA member Brett Keller already has some reports up.
I decided to embed one of Brett's photos and will post more when I get Warthog's photos. Meanwhile, check out Brett's stuff, it's worth the read.
