Not a conspiracy question (sorry for posting an off the subject post, but I noticed there are people knowlegable about Apollo here).
I am searching for a Lunar Rover Plan Drawings or Schematics, can anyone help me?
Thanks, and again I apologize for posting off subject question.

The best source I've seen so far, available in print, is the Apollo 15 Mission Report, from Apogee books.

How detailed did you want it? Are you gonna build one yourself, or did you just wanna ogle the blueprints?

Hey, how cool would that be? Your very own lunar golfcart! :D

I'm not building a real model, I'm modeling it in 3D... I have already done astronauts to go with it...

Well, if you're just modeling it in 3D, do you really need all the internal schematics? Can't you just go by photos of what it looks like on the outside?

Are the astronauts internally modeled, too? 'Cause if so, I hope you were kind enough to make a few [*ahem*] "adjustments" in the size of certain portions of their anatomy... :lol:

If you go here, the press kit has some dimensions (5.0Mb)

The operations manual might be helpful too.

for my part of this {THREAD}
i guess its understandable why the ? LUNAR ROVER ? #1
had to be controlled by AStrrolNOTS on the Moons surface
--------------------------------------------------------------------
But why oh why {in the age of UPdates & planned Obsolecence$
could not the later ones have been equipped to function
remotly from Earth {After the AStroNOTs left the surface
====================================
boo #16 15 & 14
really who to complain to about this
its JUST "STUPID".

The built series of four or five flight ready LRV's was already small enough to make them pretty expensive. Three of them were flown within a two years timeframe. No room or money for improving the design.
