    I recently built the SEMROC Satllite Killer and thought it really needed its partner. So, I threw together this cardstock version using a 24mm body tube with a 13mm rear eject engine mount. Not exactly true to the original, but inspired by it, and a quick afternoon cardstock build with some wood dowels and balsa fins. Used metallic dryer duct tape for trim.

    UPDATE: The printable cardstock template for the X-24 Bug "page 3" completion kit for the internal body tube and nose cone can be used to make a Red Eye. This PDF is for an 18mm version, but you could print it up scaled by (24/18) 133% for a 24mm version, either one could use a 13mm engine mount rear-eject pod like the SEMROC kit.
