This is a model of unknown scale of the Bullpup, a U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps air-to-ground missile. Developed by Martin, it had a range of 7 miles, a 250 lb conventional warhead, and utilized radio guidance from the launch aircraft. The missile was first deployed in 1959 and was replaced by the Bullpup A in the early 1960s. Topping Models made and donated this model to NASM in 1958.
