Avro Blue Steel missile

The Blue Steel was a British air-launched, rocket-propelled nuclear stand-off missile. I find it's lines quite pleasing. There are plenty of photos out there.  A good subject for a stubby model rocket (less than 10:1 L/D). Front winglets would require lots of nose weight.  Upscaling the fins wouldn't hurt the look.
