A MOL and a MOL

Above: A beautiful rendering of a Gemini B / MOL by Numbers Station favourite John Sentovic found in the Krafft Ehricke Papers. Below: Gorgeous artwork of the same by Lockheed artist Ludwik Źiemba. At first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking they were the same image, I certainly did. My guess is that both are based on the same cutaway by a McDonnell draughtsman. The industry term for this is, “heavily referenced.”
