Saturn V

This model celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.  Modeled after the iconic Saturn V, this rocket was built using a helix building technique.  The entire core of the model is supported by a winding “staircase” of bricks – each step is connected to part of the outer rocket providing strength.  To connect the different rocket stages of the Saturn V, a special technique was used to build the black fairing.  To create the conical fairing, sections of flat pieces were woven together like a 3-D puzzle.
