Ive been trying to find close up photos of, and blueprints for the outside of the following Russian spacecraft: Foton, Vostok and Bion.

I am also interested in any other Russian spacecraft with externally mounted titanium pressure spheres.

The only photos I can find don't have enough detail. I cannot find any blueprints, only vague diagrams. I'm interested in any detailed information or specifications on the externally mounted pressure spheres on these spacecraft.

I'll email you what I have. As for blueprints they are still locked away from public view apart from a few low resolution pictures.

Thanks that would be great.

The only images I have been able to find seem to be taken from 15 metres away.
Please send them to: keypoolequipment@internode.on.net

Kyra never sent any close-up pictures probably because she could not find any as they do not appear to exist.

Has anyone been to the Russian space museum and photographed any mock-ups or back-ups of these spacecraft.

I'm sure a lot of people would enjoy seeing them posted here.
