I want to model a missile in Simulink, however the aerospace toolbox requires a Missile DATCOM file for the stability derivatives I am only familiar with fortran basics and since I am not a US citizen or an industry professional, I have no access to that edition/release of DATCOM.
What are my options, when it comes to modelling rockets and missiles on Simulink? Any pointers and help will be much appriciated.

Great question!
You can refer to the following link to learn about a generic missile example based on publicly available references:
When you use the command openExample('simulink_aerospace/DesigningAGuidanceSystemInMATLABAndSimulinkExample') in the MATLAB command line, Simulink will open and load the model parameters into the Matlab workspace. You can refer to these when designing your own model.
I hope this helps!
