I was wondering if there is any interest in having patches made from the Grumman artwork for each manned flown LMs, ie LM 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 12? I have seen some in the past on eBay and on Aurora Auctions.

Also if anybody has any of these artworks and can send me scans of them, that would be great! I already have LM-11.

Thanks for the reference to that website. I did see it, but I'm looking for some higher res pictures. A couple of cS'ers have sent me some, thanks.

Andrew has been in contact with me about getting these made. But with 50 each being a minimum order - it's not going to happen unless there is enough interest.

If you are looking for names, I will guarantee an order. So let's see some more declarations of interest to get the project up and running.

First of all, I want to thank Tim for helping me out or should I say taking charge of this endeavour. I think these patches would be an excellent addition to anybody's collection and as you know when Tim does something, you will be confident that the end product will be outstanding. So if we can get enough people to buy these patches, that would be great!

There hasn't been enough interest to commit to having 50 each of these patches made. The project is on indefinite hold.

I'd be interested - any pricing idea?

Also - you'd emailed me separately about images - I have my stuff back from the conservators now, are you still looking for the scans?

For what it's worth, I'd definitely purchase a set or two, assuming a reasonable price. The apparently stillborn Gemini set doesn't exactly have my hopes up, though...

My goal would be to keep the price around $5.00 per patch. As long as Grumman doesn't have any issues with us doing this I will begin the work of turning these illustrations into patches.

Perfect. At $5.00 per patch, I'd definitely get 2 sets. THANK YOU!

It seems that now we are in the good way.

Thank you guys... We need some more interested people to go ahead. Are there more friends reading this?

(Tim, we will talk about this next 11th...)

I am kinda confused here... why would someone want a patch when these Grumman stickers were only produced as a decal or sticker? Can someone enlighten me?

Probably for the same reason people buy ANY commemorative patches. They're interesting, the designs are attractive. It's not about their value as historical artifacts, but rather the appreciation of the designs and the history involved.

I am also interested in purchasing a set of the LM patches, but I am curious about the apparent lack of a LM-13 patch or sticker.

About six years ago I bought a LM-13 patch on eBay. Though the seller had a few of these patches for sale, I had not seen this design before, nor have I seen one since. It measures about 5" square. Comments?

I too had seen this patch before. It's very nice.

I had left this out in my initial inquiry, but if people want to have it, maybe Tim will add it to the list.

I also saw a patch for "Spider." It was sold on eBay a few months ago from a seller who lives in Spain. If a cS'er bought it, can you please post it.

An artistic question for everyone - and I apologize if I am opening a "can of worms".

When you look over the Grumman designs many of them are monochromatic and / or feature line drawings of the LM.

Do I keep the exact image or would everyone prefer that I make them full color? (like LM 5) On one hand full color would be a more attractive patch - but on the other hand it would be less than exact.

Not having been involved in the initial design of these emblems I don't know if they color choices were limited to the printing uses at the time.

Tim, my 2c worth is that the patches should be faithful to the original designs in terms of color schemes and the line-drawn LM. One of the reasons I find these emblems desirable is that their clean designs and color schemes nicely reflect the aesthetic of their time. It's not a make-or-break issue for me, though. I'll buy regardless.

ON EDIT: I do like that LM-13 patch...Would be nice if that was included in the set.

Personally, I like the color ones as shown on the site that Ed referenced. And yes that 13 is awesome.
