Default Gemini Titan Build Help

I've been asked to build a model of the Gemini Titan. I've completed the major build on the model but I need help with the conduits along the side of the model. I just need to know if there is an identical set on the opposite side and are there other conduits in different locations. Attached is an image of a small model I found online. The red arrows point to the conduits I am talking about. In the Rockets of the World Book there appear to only be 3 on these conduits in a row. I also need to know at what location radially around the model these conduits go. Such as are they at a 45 degree position in relation to the two motors or some other angle.

And NO this is not an Estes Build.

I've looked at several photos and I believe we would be able to see them in this photo if there was one. Most photos show the bulk of the opposite side, so I think the three you pointed out are all it has. Also, some of the flights didn't have the uppermost conduit. This one does.

This shows one mission with only one short upper conduit.

JohnPursley skins have two on them, so I would bank on the point that there are two. One run on each side.
Iím sure John would be happy and quick to answer that question since he has first hand knowledge.

Found these silo pics. Looks like the missile at least has the upper and long central one on both sides. Haven't found a shot to make sure the lower one is on both sides. The lower is slightly offset from the other three in every pic I've found. First pic is huge so I'll just do links this time.

If I had to take a wild guess I bet these conduits are different on just about every variation of the flight vehicles.

That is a relief. We all appreciate you getting this figured out before you roll out the re-release of the Estes model ...

I see them left of United States most of the time, but one of the pictures shows them to the right.

I'm working on a BT80 Gemini with shapeways inter-stage, nose cone and motor nozzles. I'm looking at using 1/16" dowels for the motor cage and 1/8" half round for the conduits. I also have John P. skins.
