X-20 Dyna-Soar Carrier in RockSim9

As I was pulling my X-20 Dyna-Soar Carrier out for tomorrow's launch, I realized that I could refine the RockSim model by adding the X-20's winglets. Its maiden flight showed that something was amiss with the original sims. Since then I added some nose weight and will try again on a D12-5 this time. (Note the pair of Nike fins that are abutting the clear fins are not represented in the model. Not that anyone would notice.)

P.S. In the next upgrade, I'd love to see RockSim model offset transitions.
