Looking for help with some scale/semi scale measurements for a Nike Ajax build i am attempting.
the booster airframe is 7.5” and the sustainer is 6”. I know that’s not perfect but it’s what I am starting with. I hoping I can get some help with the measurements for the booster fins snd the main sustainer fins. I have other models of the Ajax from other manufactures but nothing seems to be consistent with how they scaled things.
thanks in advance.

So your going for approx 1/2 scale. If there is a Minakov drawing of the Nike Ajax even with its possible inaccuracies (real or supposed) it is a starting point.

There is . . . Watch for mis-spellings such as "GRAINE", which should read "GRAIN" !

Files coming below . . .

Original PDF file . . . Contains both NIKE AJAX and NIKE HERCULES.

Without the "magic" applied to produce the images above.
