Convair LEM Proposal

Posted by Scott

Model of the 1962 Republic Apollo LEM proposal. Loving the type on this. The bottom two images are concepts by competing manufacturers.

On July 25, 1962, NASA invited 11 firms to submit proposals for the LEM. Of the 11 invited, 9 submitted proposals. The firms that submitted proposals were Lockheed, Boeing, Northrop, Ling-Temco-Vought, Grumman, Douglas, General Dynamics, Republic, and Martin Marietta. Grumman was the winner. This model is owned by the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Long Island NY.

Hey I love your work. But I have a question about your ISO50 Shop, I don’t know where to post or accurately find more information about, but the shirts on ( all seem to be missing Medium as the size available. Is there a way I could find a listing of all the t-shirts on your site in medium so I can just make one mass purchase? I haven’t bought from ISO50 in a while due to the fact of no longer having the sizes I am looking for plus costs going up.
