More Rockets: Peter's SA-5 model

For complex reasons of valuable contest points I needed to fly one of Peter's models in my latest contest. Some time back he conveniently left with me a beaten up scale model of a Saturn I block 2, SA-5. It was the first Saturn rocket to orbit the earth. He asked me to take a picture of it before launch:

And here is the launch:



Since I attached a most excellent streamer (The event was Streamer Duration) with a little help from tall grass, the model was recovered with minimal additional damage.

I did get to have the fun of attaching a new shock cord inside the model with black glue.
