Check out the photo gallery with the article. Jared provided one of the drawings. The one picture is showing the model with all sort of aircraft and pods. One missile looks like a Snark flipped upside-down.

Got anymore stuff for us Jared?

Actually, these are XSSM-A-3 missiles (early Snarks) specially modified by Northrop with wings attached in the lower position, to clear both engine nacelles on the Douglas 1211-J. See attached illustration by Chris Gibson.

And John Aldaz is, of course, a forum member :)

Fantastic model. Just perfect late 1940s/early 1950s design.
