About the Scale:

These drawings are scaled to be compatible with the Revell 1/24th Gemini Capsule. Other scales may be achieved by simply resizing the drawings appropriately. This may be easily accomplished by changing the percentage in the Print Setup dialog box.

1/96th ­ 25%
1/72nd ­ 33.33%

About the Drawings:

Effort was made to obtain accurate reference data. However many dimensions were still estimated from photographic references. These estimations were always kept in the bounds of known dimensions. All drawings are 1/24th scale. The original drawings were created with MiniCad 6.0 on the Macintosh.

Areas that are particularly susceptible to estimation:

­Medium and small parts within the Stage-1 engine (YLR-87) estimated from isometric photographs.


­All dimensions of the Stage-2 engine (YLR-91) and its support structure estimated from 3/4 view and isometric line drawings.


­The top half (Gemini Modifications) of Stage-2 external detail estimations from isometric line drawings and photographs.
