Request for Information on the Apollo LES
Posted by GAF on Saturday, August 4, 2018 10:34 PM

I'm hoping someone has some more concrete details than what I've been able to find online.

Does anyone have dimensions for the Apollo LES (Launch Escape System), especially the Block 1 version?  I have an old Revell model 85-5090 as shown here:

Unfortunately, over the years I've lost the escape tower and the base, so I'm going to have to scratch-build those items.  Shouldn't be too hard, and I have some good detail photos, but dimensions are a bit lacking.  So if anyone has a blueprint, or some good details I would greatly appreciate the info.

Thanks!

Gary

Here is a link to a paper version.  The design might help.
