    Would like to attempt a half-scale of the Kaboom Krewe's "Space Oddity" which was 10 feet long and 48" wide in the body.

    I'm stuck as to how to create the football-shaped body in RockSim. Any suggestions? Link to something called the Maggot seem to be dead.

    Lots of short transitions.

    I think it can certainly be done in RockSim and OpenRocket as Neil suggests with lots and lots of short transitions. However, the real question is going to be - will the sims be accurate?
