looking for old spaceship designs ?

I was looking for old style, 1950s, spaceship designs. So I asked on a mapping site. some of these are from the 1920s/1930s, spome more modern.

One person suggested this: rockets

From Ctol's link, this book is solid gold

I have a copy. The blueprints are awesome, the commentary is fascinating, and the appendix about atomic rocket propulsion is worth the price of the book all by itself.

I was working on my fictional starship site, also a 'sort of' story included.

Looking for smaller ships I could add to my site. I use Profantasy's Campaign Cartographer with the Cosmographer Pro add-on to draw the ships.

One of the other mapppers suggested your site nyrath.

Here is my starship site: http://star.drivein-jim.net/
