Product Description
.: History :.

Each of the three Mobile Launchers used by NASA to support the Saturn V during launch stood a massive 490ft. 6in. tall, from ground level to the high-point at the top of the lightning-mast. The structures consist of four main parts: The Hammerhead Crane on the top, the Launch Umbilical Tower (LUT), the 2-story grey Launcher Base and six 22ft. tall support legs holding the whole structure off the ground.

The LUT itself is the red 380ft tall tower, with a total of 18 levels.
Attached to the side of this structure are the various Service Arms allowing access from the LUT to the rocket itself and for connecting fuel lines and direct electrical connections. On top of the 380ft. LUT is the heavy-duty crane, capable of full 360 degree rotation and able to support a maximum of 25 tons.

The 25ft. tall grey Launcher Base is 160ft. 4in. long and 135ft. wide.
There is a large 45ft. square-shaped hole through the base, immediately under the rocket called an Exhaust Chamber. This blast-shielded chamber allows the engine exhaust to pass through to flame deflectors located down in the concrete Pads. These are used to divert the hot exhaust gases safely away from the rocket and ML. Around the top of this chamber are four Hold Down Arms which support the entire weight of the Saturn-V, and held it firmly in place until the moment of launch. There were also three umbilical connections, called Tail Service Masts, at the bottom of the rocket to provide liquid and electrical lines to the first stage of the Launch Vehicle. This part of the ML structure was simply referred to as the ‘Launcher Base’ of the ML, but when they were later modified for Shuttle operations around 1980, they were officially named Mobile Launcher Platforms (MLP).
The two Launch Pads themselves, LC-39A and LC-39B, were built between November 1963 and October 1965. The identical pads are each roughly octagonal in shape and cover 130 hectares (half a square mile). The 18 meter (59 ft.) wide flame trench at the pads could not be sunk below ground level as the water table around the cape is very close to the surface. This required that the pads themselves be raised up by 13 meters (42 ft.). The distinctive concrete ‘hill’ in the center of the pads was the result. Surrounding the pads are lots of ancillary equipment used for fuelling and pre-flight maintenance.

.: Product Features :.

  • All dials are located on the Body of the model limits are applied where applicable.
  • The 25 ton LUT crane will rotate 360 degrees.
  • The service arms with the exception of the Command module (CM) access arm, and the S1cintertank arm rotate on one dial.
  • The CM arm and the S1cintertank arm are on separate dials, as during launch, the CM arm goes back 5 minutes before launch, and the S1cIntertank arm pulls back around 10 seconds before launch.
  • The stablilization arm extends and retracts.
  • Launch Umbilical Tower (LUT) is a figure file with moving parts.
  • Ground base is a prop, separate from the LUT.
  • The SaturnV is available separately.

    This product is meant for use in Poser 5 and above: it uses Runtime Library sub-folders and procedural textures and may not render properly in Poser 4.
