Default WAC drawing?


Anybody got a dimensioned drawing of the WAC from a Bumper-WAC? I've seen the one from the Czech modeler. And I found Gordy's shop drawing on this website. I was hoping there is an Alway-style drawing out there somewhere.

I was thinking of building a 1/10th scale for single stage flying to go with my Semroc-based WAC and WAC B.
Identifying a problem without proposing a solution is just whining.

There is a Pete Alway drawing of the Bumper version of the WAC Corporal in ROTW. I have not seen any thing but the first edition, but the relevant drawing is on page 91. Since that configuration of the WAC Corporal was not flown by itself, there is not much detail in that drawing. The major changes in the WAC are two spin rockets 180 degrees apart on the WAC body, an ogive nose cone, and four find of a different planform than on the WAC Corporals that have been kitted. Matt Steele may have some info on the Bumper WACs since he used to fly them S5C in the WSMC. It was a popular choice for that event because of FAI rules before they were changed in the last revision cycle to allow a wider range of prototypes.
'Til next time,
