Repaint of the Saturn I was completed back in February. Here's how she turned out:

Pathfinder will be next! BOLO for an announcement on that soon. It's a very big project that will take 3 years to complete.

Wait a second... When did they convert that Saturn1 into a block 2 vehicle? That LES and boilerplate aren't original.

Mysteries Mysteries...

I guess thats what happens when you don't live in AL.

To my knowledge this was always a Saturn 1 Block II vehicle.

Now, let me first offer a disclaimer, my brain is a pile of mush because of too much stress. But I'm almost certain the Saturn 1 only had a shroud back in the day similar to the block one Saturns that were used for the water shots when they were still testing the Saturn vehicles.

I'm going to look at pictures now...

OK I know where I went wrong. I'm thinking of the S1 block 1 at MSFS next door. See what happens when you get old!
