Davy Crockett scale data

I've previously discussed the fact that I wanted to build a flying model of the M388 Davy Crockett nuclear projectile.  It is still on my long list of things I'll probably never get around to building.  Today, Scott Lowther posted some additional information on this nasty little booger, including additional photos and rough line drawing.  Although not currently dimensioned, the latter would be very useful for the build.  The ultimate would be to build a 2-stager with the booster being the recoilless rifle shown in the attached photo and the sustainer being the Davy Crockett itself.  Big clear fins required on said booster!
