Sixteen Rockets of the Spaceflight Dreamers is the latest of Peter Alway’s supplements to Rockets of the World. It tells the story of the early 20th Century experimenters—crazy dreamers and engineering geniuses (sometimes both in the same person) in Germany, The USSR, and America by way of 16 specific rockets (detailed in the “Contents” below).
Like all booklets in this series, each rocket gets a detailed dimensioned reference drawing. While all of the photos and illustrations are reproduced in black and white, the drawings include the complete color data you need to paint your models accurately.
Some of these drawings are based on scans of original GIRD blueprints; others are reconstructed from a mix of partial dimensions, diagrams, and photographs.
Entries on each of the following rockets include historical summaries and dimensioned and color-keyed drawings.
