1/144 Apollo Saturn II INT-19
Resin kit to convert the Airfix Saturn V or Skylab kit into the Saturn II INT-19 variant.
The INT-19 was one of a range of intermediate performance launchers proposed to fill the gap between the Saturn 1B and the Saturn V.
In common with the Saturn INT-18, the INT-19 also used SRBs to supplement the power of the S-II, However instead of the large boosters of the -18 it used smaller solids derived from the first stage of the Minuteman missile. It was intended to use between four and twelve solids, with some being started at lift-off, and some being started in flight.
The heaviest configuration would have consisted of twelve SRBs, with eight started at launch, and a further four started after the first group had been jettisoned. It would have been capable of lofting a payload of up to 34,000 kilograms into low orbit.
The resin kit consists of the S-II base/heatshield, five sea-level J-2 engines with insulating batting, and 12 boosters
