APR Monthly Historical Documents Program

The "Aerospace Projects Review Monthly Historical Documents Program" is a subscription service that, for a mere pittance, provides a monthly haul of high-rez scans of documents and large format diagrams/artwork of aerospace historical interest, as well as a CAD diagram created by yours truly. Formerly known as the APR Patreon, it has spread out a bit to a simple PayPal-subscription system. The APR Patreon is still running, of course, so there are two ways to sign up, both described here:
http://www.aerospaceprojectsreview.com/monthly.htm

This has been running since 2014, with multiple documents/diagrams issued every month. Every single monthly set is available for purchase by subscribers. Subscriptions run from as little as $1.50 to $10 per month, with an increasing set of perks. The first set, from 2014-07, included:
Document: "Manned Orbiting Station and Alternatives, Vol. IV," dated 1963. This provides a number of diagrams of MOL and Dyna Soar-based small space stations, as well as being the earliest known publication of the Gemini "interceptor."
Diagram: "TAC BJ-58:" LARGE format diagram of the two-engined BJ-58 supersonic bomber
CAD diagram: two included... Titan III/X-20/MOL and ISINGLASS.

HTML updates fill me with yawns, so I've not done too well with that. Hopefully I'll get through the full catalog *here,* at which point I'll copy/paste the text over there.

2014-12 package:
Document: “Design Study for an Air Force Model F-82E Airplane Modified to a Ground Attack Aircraft with Allison XT-38 Turbo Prop Engine,” a North American Aviation report from 1948. This was not for a simple engine swap-out… the cockpits were moved forward and the engines located behind them, driving the props with long shafts.
Document: “SAM-D Air Defense Weapon System,” a 1973 US Army description document of what would become the Patriot missile system.
Large Format Diagram: a large-format full-color (w/bonus grayscale versions) diagram of the X-20 Dyna Soar. Very detailed and clear. Looks great on a wall (believe me on that!)
CAD Diagram: Boeing Model 853-21 “Quiet Bird” a 1961 design study for a low radar cross section (i.e. stealthy) research aircraft.

Do you do research services on request?
Sorta. If it's something I already have, then, yes. If it's something I do not, then it gets trickier. If it requires me to travel to some distant archive to do research, I'm happy to do so... given the funding. And if it's something in between, like if i know a guy, then... maybe.

In short:

That one-way manned space mission reminds me of a novel with that theme that came out in the late-50's or early-60's, The Pilgrim Project by, IIRC, Hank Searls.
