I read about the IKEA display case in the comments on Imgur (and I had thought it looked familiar),
I'm actually tempted to buy one of these rocket kits now. I have an empty IKEA case at home that I used to use for my diecast models in my old apartment but haven't bothered filling it since moving.

My backlog is way too long though. I’ve got both the Chiron and the GT3 RS laying about in their boxes, half a dozen Speed Champions cars and still want the Mustang. I did impulse buy the 007 DB5 a month or so ago and went through that over the course of a few nights.

During ringmeet, @nicjasno, @BlaRo, and I went to a small independent LEGO store that also had Cobi, the not LEGO brand which has some cool soviet type cars from east Germany and Poland. I put these together a week after and forgot about this thread.

Do it anyway. You won't regret it. As much as I'm into the car sets, the Saturn V might just be the coolest set they've ever done.

Is that 850 Canadian moneys? It's $700 here.
Still overpriced, IMO. It's big, but the price to piece count ratio isn't great. Usually ~4700 pieces would be about $500 US. Even the giant Millenium Falcon sticks fairly close to the usual ratio of roughly $100 per 1000 pieces.

I've shrugged off all of the sets I like the look of until now but I'm not sure I can do it for this one. That's a huge chunk of change but it's a real thing of beauty. Grey beauty, but beauty all the same.
