Hi Folks,

Regarding the LK located among the artifacts at the RKK Energia "Center 
for Technology Development ...": I was fortunate enough to have a 
colleague who was able to take several dozen detailed photos of this 
LK. With these photos I have been able to verify that this LK is in 
fact the same LK which was previously displayed at KKKMT. The exterior 
has been painted, a few minor items are now missing, and the hinge on 
one of the protective flaps covering the nozzle of the RD-858 engine 
was damaged in the move - but a number of scratches, dings, and stains 
identify it as the same LK formerly displayed at the Korolev School.

Best Regards,

David L. Rickman

...More recent pictures show another LK that Anatoly saw at
http://www.energia.ru/ru/news/news-2010/im/photo_01-27-19.jpg  but it
is a different and older version: the hatch opens outward and there is
another access hatch at the back.  This version is painted white and
resembles the LK at KKKMT...

...A little known version of the Soviet lunar module from
the Moon Race era stood in the corner...
