Semi-scale 4" Harpoon build

I finally decided on something to build with the BT-101 and custom foam nose cone that has been sitting around gathering dust. I ran across some photos of the AGM-84 Harpoon and decided my nose cone looks pretty close to the proper shape. This will be no better than semi-scale because I started with the dimensions from a RockSim file for The Launch Pad's 2.6" version.  I don't know how close to scale that kit is and I don't know how well the RockSim file matches the kit.  Nevertheless, it is close enough for me!

Here's the first cut at the simulation model.
