    Description

    Gemini: Rare Vintage McDonnell Gemini Re-entry Vehicle Blueprint, with Additional McDonnell Concept Blueprint. Absolutely fascinating vintage McDonnell print (scale 1/10=1, Code Ident No. 76301) dated 10/26/63 titled "RV-1 Gemini Re-Entry Vehicle". Measuring 60" x 36" the print has four different drawings of the Gemini capsule with varying details and purposes, including several with the two-man crew seated in the capsule. Heavily annotated throughout showing locations of equipment and protective materials. A beautiful, incredibly rare, print that is a joy to view and study. Included is an additional rare vintage McDonnel blueprint titled "L.S.M.T.V- Launch Configuration (B58/ Fixed Geometry- 480 in Manned)- Mach 3". A 1/40 scale print dated 4/22/65 it appears to most likely be related to the Lifting Body fixed wing aircraft that NASA experimented with in the 1960's. The Gemini print has some roughness to the edges and slight water damage, none of which effects any of the images, overall very good. The L.S.M.T.V. print has some tears and tape repairs throughout, overall good. Wonderful opportunity to obtain rare and interesting relics of spaceflight.
