Otona no Chogokin Apollo 11 & Saturn V by Bandai 1/144
Finally I got my hands on my holy grail of models- Bandai's Otona no Chogokin series Apollo 11 & Saturn V in 1/144. I missed the boat of buying this beast when it came out in 2009. Fortunately I didn't pay some ridiculous price as seen on ebay but still a bit more than retail. Regardless it was time for me to get this model since my Bandai's Space Shuttle was getting lonely.
There's plenty of reviews of the model online so I won't go into full details, this is mainly a picture review. Hope you like it- I know I do!

This is everything the model came with, quite impressive:
Here's some of the support beams if you want to have the model on it's side:
The first stage is quite impressive, it's just as big as bandai's space shuttle with the boosters.

anyone who has bought the Saturn V Apollo 11 or Apollo 13 rocket could spare their ascent stage of the lunar module? If you display it upright and have no need for the LM, please send me a PM. I wish to purchase it from you, thanks.
