Gemini B cockpit labels
« on: 10/19/2017 08:53 AM »
I'm working on a Gemini B cockpit 3D model for a simulator, and I need to write all the instrument labels.

Are there any good photos of the center panels?
The best I have are attached.

I've found great photo references for the side panels, it's just the center ones that are lacking.

I have seceral revisions of Mac drawings of the Gemini B controls including one produced for the Critical Design Review (CDR) dated 17 march 1969.  I will try to scan them but they may be too big.  My father was given these for working on the MOL program including being part of the team that launched the only test flight of the program.

That would be great!

Yes, scanned files can be big.
Another option is just to take pictures of the pages, as many as needed and share those as a photo album somewhere.
Whatever works best for you  ;D

The drawing will not fit in my scanner and I will not damage the print trying to make it fit.  My phone's camera is does not have the resolution required.  I will borrow a digital camera and try again to attach some pictures.

The photo you have does not even include the " ground command guidance stage 0" indicator light.

Thank you in advance for all the trouble!

Sharing what I have so far. I'm sure there are some errors.
This is the first stage, once the labels are in place, I'll start drawing all the switches and instruments.
In the end it will look clean and nice ;)
