Steve Eves next project

Saturn 1B missions

Why stop after building a 1/10th scale Saturn V?  Steve Eves isn’t stopping. Plans for his next project have making their rounds. Looks like the next giant model will be the Saturn 1B. The big difference in this upcoming model is he intends to make it a 2 stager. I have not heard any details on the scale. Will he keep to the 1/10th scale as in Saturn V or will he up the scale and break some more records?

    I talked to Steve Eves at MDRA’s Red Glare 7, were he had part of the Saturn IB project on display. It’s just slightly smaller than 1/10 scale, but close enough that he can use the same capsule assembly from the Saturn V.

    I think that article is a bit confused b/c it implies Steve is trying to break records he set with the Saturn V, but it seems this rocket will be lighter and shorter than the Saturn V – it will indeed go higher, but hitting 10k wouldn’t be any sort of “record.” Either way, it’ll be cool to watch!
