    Large fins, varied body, cool paint pattern, interesting history.
    Should be a fairly straightforward build.
    Specs are in Alway's Rocket's of the World.

    As such there are likely many models of it already.

    Yes:
    it's actually a fairly common Scale subject.

    Ram jets have air coming in and going out, in our hobby this would be a major undertaking.

    The ram jet cone was fashioned by python rocketry with a lip in the front of the cone.

    There is enough space there with holes spaced around the nose to have the incoming air flow in and out of the side of the cone.

    The holes will be drilled at a 60 degree angle so the incoming airflow should flow smoothly around the cone.

    This will also make an awesome sound of the flight going up.

    I'm planning on a build thread here on the BRAHMOS.

    You can PM me for more info.

    Now back to this thread.

    I photographed the engineering mockup they had on display in Moscow at the MAKS airshow in 2015. If I can find the photos, you are welcome to use them, although I'm not sure they would be anymore than what you already have.

    Somewhat larger than 3-4"... a half-scale Pye Wacket

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pye_Wacket

    "Project "Pye Wacket", officially known as the Lenticular Defense Missile (LDM) Program and by the project number WS-740A, was instituted in 1958 in response to a US Air Force request for a Defensive Anti-Missile System (DAMS) to protect the proposed B-70 Valkyrie strategic bomber from high-speed, high-altitude surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) and interceptor aircraft. "

    Full scale is 70" dia. or just under 6 feet. A half-scale would be just under 3 feet dia., and 4 1/2 inches thick.

    Frankenrocket? Aww, come on, the Black Brant XII is beautiful. I saw a model of one fly Friday at Naram as a three-stager. It's a Talos-Taurus-Black Brant-Nikha. The Taurus is a late-model honest John with clipped Nike Ajax fins. The Nikha is finless and looks like just a black segment of the payload.

    I believe this beast is still in use, though this picture shows the first flight with nice bright test colors.

    Scale data is in one of the RotW supplements.

    I meant that it looked like parts from different rockets put together, not that it was ugly (although that's not an unreasonable step).

    HiFIRE - Hypersonic test article:

    https://www.nextbigfuture.com/2017/0...last-week.html

    The carrier rocket might be a Terrier-Orion, but the test article itself is pretty new and unique, would make a neat scale subject:
