Fred Freeman's Painting of a Coleopter. Colliers Magazine Sept 16, 1955

I love early space art and while this is actually in the atmosphere, I thought this would be fun to see. Fred Freeman did many realistic paintings for Colliers. This one was a small spread in the Sept 16, 1955 issue. You might have missed it leafing through the issue but it show one of the more interesting flight concepts of the time.  A "space age" propellor ship.

  1. It's always fun to compare early prototypes and later implementations. If anything, the common modern quadcopter drone looks as science-fiction-y as any 1950s wonder. Thanks for digging this up.
