The model rocket seen in Charlie's office (on the table and on a shelf behind his desk) is a semi-scale model of a real rocket. It's a Nike-X (specifically a Nike Zeus B (XLIM-49A)), an Army rocket. The model (identified by the decal markings) was probably made from a model rocket kit produced by Estes in the '70s and '80s (starting in '75) which could actually fly. The launch pad which it is displayed on (on the shelf) is an Estes PortaPad.
