This missile reminds me of one that someone on here scratch built. I think it was called the "Coyote"?????

Well anyway, the rocketeer made the air intakes about of thin balsa..........

Slabs of sheet styrene with L bracket styrene frame. It's easy to cut, no grain to fill or to throw off your cutting, glues easily, and comes in white so it wouldn't need finishing on a scale of this.

I made a scoop out of the thinnest sheet I could find, to cover the lug on this bird: http://rocketryforum.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=8455&highlight=nightmare+interceptor

It held up on an E9 launch. The balsa nose didn't hold up hitting a rock on touchdown.

I like thin card with a layer of light fibreglass. It's still light and flexible, but stronger them naked card.
