Ed,
If you can beg, borrow or steal a copy of Peter's Rockets of the World there is a B/W color pattern illustration showing the different colors in various cross hatches. Also a stenciling pattern of the booster body. The colors are light machined metal, dark machined metal, dull aluminum alloy, olive drab, and black. On pg. 149 in the 4th edition.
Good luck.

A model doesn't have to be particularly good to qualify for scale or sport scale competition. The rules specify that the model can't just be an upper stage, and they specify that you must somehow document the model (some sort of picture of the real thing for Sport Scale, and much more persnickity requirements for a photo and some real-world dimensions for scale), but there are no standards for accuracy for a contest. So, for instance, if you entered that kit as-is, along with a photo or outline drawing of the real Nike Deacon, you would qualify. And whether you would be likely to win depends on whatever other models are entered.

But that doesn't keep me from looking down my nose at what a manufacturer produces as a kit. I make an effort *not* to look down my nose at a modeler's efforts, though. I can admire a well-built version of that kit as a fine bit of model rocket history.

Thanks!


I've never seen any color images of the Nike-Deacon.

Peter Alway has color information in ROTW, but no color images.

I posted some data below, but you may already have it.

Thanks for these photos. They have more details on the nose section than what I have in other sources. Also the photos of the DAN pre-flifgt show enough to build a reasonable scale version of the launcher as well.

Looking at that photo, I’d say that the original image was in color, but reproduced (in whatever publication this image was published in) in black and white. My ‘seat of the paints’ eyeballs says that original photo was not taken on black and white film.

So, if you can find the original of this photo, I *think* you might find a color image.

Earl,

No luck . . .

I'm afraid that no color images, if any were ever taken, have survived to the present day.

I did find some additional info, however.
