If you've taken any interest in space exploration-themed LEGO town sets over the years, you've probably noticed that the rockets, shuttles, etc, aren't really at the right scale for minifigs. These rockets, on the other hand, are behemoths that look like the real thing - properly shaped, decorated, and to scale. The Saturn V even features cut-aways so you can see the interior. The other two rockets are recognizable as the Titan II and the Saturn IB. This one's worth taking the time to look at all of the pictures available (there are just 21 and they reveal some well-done details and interesting building techniques).
This model is currently on display at at the Washington Square LEGO Store in Tigard, Oregon, United States. This is one of many models being featured by LEGO stores as part of their "Window Into The Community" project, which showcases models made by local adult enthusiasts. This display began on Thursday, January 11, 2007, and I do not know how long it will be up.
