    Good Evening to All,

    Last year I was researching and working on the designed-but-never-built Big Gemini Logistics Spacecraft, where McDonnell designed an enlarged Gemini craft by extending the cone profile to a larger diameter thus providing greater volume.

    I later thought about what a North American Apollo CSM competitor might have looked like. These are completely conjectural designs as I have never found actual drawings or illustrations of enlarged NAA CSMs. The smaller design would ride on a Saturn S-IVB, while its larger big brother would ride on top of a Saturn S-II stage.
