Yes this would be the Manned Nuclear Interplanetary Vehicle. This is for the old Strombecker Manned Space Kit #-D38.
Was this based on an actual Convair Plan for an actual Space Craft or just a bunch of concept drawings. I have looked on the web and can't find very much material on it. Was there really an Air Force Project in the works for this Space Vehicle and if so can anyone find any of the Blue Prints for time that it was tossed around at Convair.
I'm trying to find some Actual Dimensions for this Craft. The instructions do say that the 'shaft' between the crew compartment and the fuel tanks is to be 100 feet long. That would seem to be the only indication of size there is on the instruction sheet.
Was the 'shaft' designed to be big enough for them to crawl through to be able to get to the engine. Can anybody find and post up some of the Drawings. The Design is really pretty simple and straight forward and I would like to try to build one up in about 1/72 or possibly even in 1/48 scale.
This woud be a Good excuse to test what Modeling Skills that I think I have .... :) :)
I hope you can help me here
