After cleaning a spare room, I just found my copy of NARTS Fourteen US Army Missiles of the Cold War. After looking over I've decided to build a Mid Power Little John, both versions the production and the prototypes.
Scale 1:4.083 (3" OD Body Tube from BMS)
I'm a mechanical designer by trade so I use Solidworks for my cad work and use a HAAS CNC TM-1 mill and an Epilog CO2 laser etcher/cutter. I'm planning machining tooling for the nose and transitions as if I was going to go into production.
Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be posting pictures of the cad renderings and pictures of the tooling.
One question. I've heard that the prototype is an unstable design for models. Has anyone made a model of it?
