looking for documentation for 1963 minuteman missile computer

Most of the 60's to mid 70's era were lacquered, later ones were coated in a
thin "sliastic" which is an elastic silicone coating in leiu of potting
compound or laquering. Worked lots of AF equipment but I can't say that I've
done more than just hold and look at any Minuteman equipment while I was a
cruise missile instructor (next to the Minuteman and MX courses) at the
now-closed Chanute AFB in Rantoul IL.

  I have seen the boards out of one of the minutemen missile computers. IIRC
they are very interesting Boards composed of discrete components. Anyone who
has a full computer is very lucky. I would consider it to be an extremely
rare collectable.

  The Boards that I saw were about 4"X6" and heavily plated in gold then
lacquered. They are very pretty. I would love to see a whole computer.
