When I heard LEGO was releasing this set again I jumped for joy as I had missed out previously. This ship is an awesome set when fully assembled and really quite large!! I really loved everything about this especially the box art and history of the Saturn V in the instructions. This made it extra fun as my 5 year old has a keen interest in space so being able to show him the actual photos and the way it seperated on the way to the moon before we even started building was a bonus. The build itself was great with lots of new techniques I haven’t seen before. As others have said lots of x2 or x4 repeated parts but to see this monster grow at each step is totally worth it. Great job LEGO on a fantastic and educational set
I loved building it so very much but when it came to the mini lunar lander ( I recommend building the big one as well). On step 313 the picture showed putting a piece all the way in and in doing so I broke my first lego piece after building so many sets. I love building that please don’t let that sway your opinion on getting this set. By far my favorite build.

We're so glad you liked the build, but we're sorry you broke a brick! Visit LEGO.build/BricksPieces-BV to replace that broken brick.
Born in the late 60s my childhood was much influenced by NASA's achievements with the Apollo project. 52 years later this Lego Saturn V encapsulates all of my childhood excitement and joy. Fascinating build and stunning end results. I simply love this rocket, not least because it is HUGE! The addition of the astronauts, LEM, and capsule are really brilliant Highly recommended. Thanks Lego!
