Can you clarify something for us?

Are you looking for 1/2 scale and 3/4 scale plans for the real thing?

Or 1/2 scale and 3/4 scale plans for the Estes model?

I mean the real Nike Ajax is a bit over 32 feet long!

That's like 16 feet and 24 feet long.

JimZ's site is for Estes models. Peter Alway's Rockets of the World is a great place to get scale data for many rockets and missiles. I'm not completely sure, but I do believe the Nike Ajax is in there.

Rockets of the World does not have any military missiles in it; however, it does have sounding rockets, satellite and space launchers derived from military hardware.

Peter Alway DID publish data on the Nike Ajax in his spiral-bound volume "14 US Missiles of the Cold War." Or was it "12 Missiles...." Regardless, the Nike Ajax is in there. I have it at home!

Or the other way around.
