Lego 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V

I normally don't collect too many Lego sets outside of the Star Wars UCS series, but once I saw the Saturn V set I knew I had to get it! I'm an engineer by trade, and the story behind the development of the Apollo program is one of the legendary and most amazing systems engineering feats of all time.

Lego have done justice to the memory of the engineers and astronauts involved in the Apollo program. This set is just beautiful once complete, and commands presence on display.



I could barely contain my excitement when I received these two sets! The Saturn V initially sold out too on the Lego webstore, but luckily before Christmas it went back up on preorder. So I got my order in and it arrived early January. Just happy to secure both sets in my collection!



It's a pretty big set once complete, with a length of about 1m. It looks great displayed either vertically or horizontally using the little support beams that are included in the set.



To round out the set, I love the little Lunar Module and moon landing set, and the Command Module splashdown set. Bother are small, but have great little details that really complement the larger rocket. If you're a Lego fan, or someone who loves the space programs, this is a highly recommended set!
