I remember about 15 years ago when McDonnell Douglas was test flying the DC-X, a one-third scale version of their VTOL ground-to-orbit vehicle, the Delta Clipper. Had funding not been cut, the next step would have been a a two-thirds scale model, the DC-Y, followed by the DC-Z, a full-scale prototype.
