I consider this "Bomb Pop" decor and any other "non operational" paint scheme on Missiles/Rockets an abomination. Transformed a historically significant piece of military history into a mere YARD-ORNAMENT.
Yecchhhhh.

Some photos when I visited my son when he was at Joint Base McCord/Lewis. Visited June 2009, we went to the museum there. Here are some photos that I took during the visit.

Was stationed there myself back in the 1970's.

Nice shots . . .

I attempted to bring out a little more "shadow detail" on them.

I am reminded once again just how really thin the HJ fins are. It is hard to get the truly scale thickness when working with balsa or even basswood. Built up is best but even then they can be a bit thick.

Great looking pics of operationally finished properly Honest John and Nike Ajax.
A 1:1 scale HPR Nike Ajax would be a fun project.
A few years ago somebody did a 1/2 scale Mercury Redstone.
It was huge.

Just imagine what would have happened if NASA had allowed a crew of Hippies to paint the Saturn-V with Peace Symbols, "Love Flowers" and Psychedelic patterns . . . LOL !
