AS-207 Vehicle Systems Information Drawings
I have in my collection a series of engineering diagrams entitled "AS-207 Vehicle Systems Information Drawings". This 8½" x 11" booklet primarily consists of fold-out pages, ranging in size from 24" to just over 41". The drawings include
- Apollo-Saturn Vehicle Configuration (Drawing # 60C00721 Rev. A)
- Apollo-Saturn Vehicle Inboard Profile (Drawing # 60C00722 Rev. A)
- Apollo-Saturn Vehicle to GSE Information (Drawing # 60C00723 Rev. A)
- Apollo-Saturn Vehicle Access Provisions (Drawing # 60C00724 Rev. A)
- Apollo-Saturn Vehicle Antenna Arrangement (Drawing # 60C00725 Rev. A)
- Apollo-Saturn Vehicle Handling & Transportation (Drawing # 60C00726 Rev. A)
- S-IB Stage Assembly Layout, Apollo-Saturn (Drawing # 60C00727)
- S-IVB stage Assembly Layout, Apollo-Saturn (Drawing # 60C00728)
- IU Assembly Layout, Apollo-Saturn (Drawing # 60C00729)
- Payload Assembly Layout, Apollo-Saturn (Drawing # 60C00730 Rev. A)
- S-IB Stage Hazardous Materials, Apollo-Saturn (Drawing # 60C00731)
- S-IVB Stage Hazardous Materials, Apollo-Saturn (Drawing # 60C00732)
- Payload Hazardous Materials, Apollo-Saturn (Drawing # 60C00733 Rev. A)
- Saturn IB Vehicles Nomenclature Chart (Drawing # 10M03604 Rev. F)
- Saturn IB Vehicles Information Drawing (Drawing # 10M03681 Rev. H)
The latest drawing revision appears to be dated July 25, 1966, so the information included in the booklet pre-dates the Apollo 1 fire and includes a number of Block I spacecraft launches, four (four!) unmanned Lunar Module launches, and Saturn IB launches up to AS-212 (of course, AS-210 was the last Saturn IB launched; AS-209 was reserved for a potential Skylab rescue mission and served as the ASTP backup booster, was never launched, and now resides in the KSC Rocket Garden; and AS-211 -- or at least its first stage -- resides at the Ardmore Welcome Center, off of I-65, just south of the Tennessee/Alabama border).
For those of you who think that this set of drawings sounds familiar, heroicrelics.org contributed the full-sized version of these drawings to the bonus DVD of Alan Lawrie's Saturn I/IB book; if you have that book, then you already have these drawings.

Here are a few of the highlights from the booklet:
