I attended several launches of the DCX and DCX-A, as well as
the rollout of the DCX-A. I was fortunate enough to see the DCX-A
as it was being rebuilt, too , and have photosgraphs of all these
This were over a decade ago, and before digital, so I would have
to scan them for you. I do have some basic info on my web site
already, including a couple of photos and also a simple drawing
that shows the four sides of the craft. You can see what I have by
following the link below. There are a couple photos on this page,
one at the top and one farther down and if you click on the upper
DCX photo, it will take you to the schematic drawing I did. (I
apologize for the crudeness of the drawing. It was drawn pixel by
pixel in a program called SuperPaint, if anyone remembers that
from the computer days of yesteryear!))
The one thing to note is that besides the black markings
denoting the four sides for ID porposes, there were no other
markings when the vehicle was actually flying. There were
markings painted on it for rollout ceremonies of both the DCX
and DCX-A, including the company name and logo, and the
American flag. These markings were slightly different for the
DCX versus the DCX-A (NASA versus the DoD). All of these
markings were removed before flight.
If you're interested in additional photos of the various versions
that I have, please let me know, and I can do some scanning.
Maybe I could swap for a model when they're done? : - )

need to be able to see all the sides of the ship, so that I can
develop some decals for an upcoming resin model.
