    Here is my 9" patriot.
    Nose: 1 of 2 I have from some local guys in the Culpeper Club
    It's fiberglass so it has 4" QT running from the tip to about 12" from the shoulder.
    The nose had very little shoulder so I added about a 6" of tubing to make the nose a little more to scale. It has (like every other nose 6" or larger has the bulkplate up inside the shoulder to house the MW WRC2 for main backup.
    Airframe: 9" of generic tubing that is as porous as a hand towel. I acquired these over 12 years ago from Ken Allen. an acquaintance of his was starting out making nose cones, tubes and such. I had him glass wrap them and he did and finished it gelcoat. I stretched a chunk of airfram sleeve material and added to thin layers of epoxy. Finish came out grea and they are stout.
    Fins: 1/2" baltic birch through to the motor assembly.
    Motor mount: 1 - 98mm and 8- 38mm outboards (2 are reserved for timer modules.)
    Got some vinyl lettering and painted ALL of it with Krylon

    Flew several weeks ago at BattlePark 2016 in Culpeper.

    What on earth can you even fly that on?

    I spoke with a coworker on my previous program about this with my PS Patriot build in mind. He worked the Patriot program for a long time and has never seen anything like the so-called "type 2" or "scud buster" in existence.
    Additionally, the "type 1" was only used in very early testing, and that was hit or miss.

    These days the GEM-T test rounds are Orangey as below (which then look brown after they're shot out of a tube in a fireball) and operational rounds are probably plain metal colored more like this 2nd pic

    I can be on board with that. I regularly find myself saying "bugger the scalefolk!"

    I also don't know why on earth Stickershock has that as a decal set if it isn't anything real
