A pair of 1:9 scale Saturn 1B's

I see that Steve Eves' and Vern Hoag's Saturn 1B's are slated to be on display at Red Glare IX this coming weekend. Attached is a shot of Steve's from Red Glare VIII last spring.  I hope to get plenty of photos of both of them.

Although smaller than his Saturn V (a mere 24' tall and 600lbs), the 1B is arguably more complex since it is staged and features deployable fins on the sustainer.   I don't know if I posted it before, but ROCKETS Magazine has a page dedicated to the Saturn 1B Projects.
