Default Boyce Aerospace has come out with updated 1/100 Apollo Capsule set

The Boyce Aerospace Hobbies Apollo Capsule and LES Kit is a replacement for Estes 1/100th Scale Saturn Kits
DLP-printed in resin for unique details
Kit includes one-piece capsule with trusses and nozzles
Available in 1/100th scale
When you need a quality replacement Apollo Capsule and LES 1/100th scale, look no further than Boyce Aerospace Hobbies. Our 1/100th scale kit is DLP printed from resin with incredible details. Kit includes one-piece capsule with trusses and nozzles.

My thoughts
Now all you have to do is just glue on four escape tower nozzles and you are ready to go besides some painting of coarse.

Only $14.95

Is this the same capsule that came with the 1/100 S1B kit the last several months, or has it been updated since then?

(Translation: My S1B kit is still in the box)

No, it's new and improved. High detail, see through tower, all made together as one piece, just glue on escape rocket nozzles on.

Do you have any larger photos? The thumbnails just show up as thumbnails when I click on them.

Best to go directly to the Boyce Aerospace website. A number of photos there.

In August 2018 my oldest son gave me their 1/125 scale Little Joe II as a birthday gift. I finally got around to building it this past month. The Apollo capsule escape rocket struts were beyond my skills. On Thursday, I emailed to ask if the new 1/100 scale capsule with the "see through" struts are included in the SA-7 kit, and the answer was "yes". Sent in my order last night!

Great! I wasn't surprised. At the time of the first run of those kits, they didn't have the High Detailed Apollo Nose Cone.

Thanks for the info! I believe this new cone is the best on the market at this point and time.
