Item 6247 - Apollo CM Block II Interior Design Layout Drawings Catalog 474 (Apr 2016)

(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $3,675.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Collection of nine master drawings of the Block II Apollo Command Module on eight large transparency sheets and one large paper sheet, the majority hand-drawn in pencil or ink with supporting preexisting printed designs. Sheets range in approximate size from 180 x 52 to 40 x 36, and were printed in collaboration with North American Aviation, Inc., the Space and Information Systems Division, the Axonometric Design Group, and the North American Rockwell Corporation. Seven transparency sheets detail the interior configuration and markings of the Block II foldable crew couches, with two labeled “View Looking Down & Inboard,” and another labeled “View Looking Down & Outbd”; the other unlabeled sheets show full and half-scale cut-section interior capsule design, listing areas such as subsystem, support assembly, equipment bays, and central crew compartment. Remaining two sheets offer a broader overview of the capsule, with one showing a straightforward capsule design, and the other (paper) exhibiting an immense three-part layout of the Block II framework. Rolled and in overall fine condition. These enormous, highly detailed drawings, believed to be the masters for subsequently generated technical publications and flight manuals, offer unique, unprecedented insight into the remarkable craftsmanship and engineering involved in the creation of the capsule used in all manned Apollo missions. An impressive, aesthetically pleasing ensemble of early Apollo designs. Oversized. Please contact RR Auction for a shipping quote.
