Default Gooney SCUD-B

Another playoff game, another gooney design.
This time its the SCUD-B!
I created a rocksim-world facsimile SCUD cone out of hollow plastic transitions pieced together with zero length shoulders.
The fins are proportioned for a gooney look, but the fin shape doesn't scream out anything in particular without adding the distinctive SCUD cone to it.

Another design method (i.e. Excelsior) would have been to use the stocl Baby Bertha fins with a SCUD cone and detail the model with panels, rivets and other stuff.

Rocksim went nuts with "calculated mass" and the thing came in at close to a POUND!
Once I turned it off and set the cone to almost zero mass, things simmed a bit better.

Quirky program.
