Metal and resin construction. Three stage? Cannot ID what rocket or missile. Majority of seller's models was from Martin so I am leaning towards a early concept of Vanguard rocket. Any thoughts?

Looks like a Scout to me. Produced by Lockheed Martin Vought.

Agree, and I'll say its a Scout-B multistage rocket configuration for placing small satellites in earth orbit.

That would be LTV and not Lockheed Martin, who formed a year after the last Scout launch. Ling Temco Vought Corporation.

Thanks for the clarification. I was trying to suggest a link to Martin since the model was among Martin things.

It sure is. Thanks for reply and apologies for my ignorance in theses matters.

Will restore the rocket fins and make a stand for it. Is should go find with my Aeros model.
