Colors for a Navy inert AGM-45/78?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

     I'm working on a 72nd scale VA-34 A-6B from the early 1970's. I want to hang an inert AGM-45 and AGM-78 on it. Web searches have brought up plenty of pics of live rounds, but nothing for dummy rounds. Does anyone have a pic to share? Thanks, Fred K.

For inert AGM-45 Shrike (called a CATM-45A) it would be as follows;

 

Radome and guidance section - gloss white

Warhead section - blue FS 35109

Control section - gloss white

Propulsion section - blue FS 35109

Wings and Fins - gloss white

(middle picture except the section aft of the wings (rocket motor) will be blue)

 

For an inert AGM-78, called a CATM-78, it would as follows;

 

Radome - black

forward part of guidance section - gloss white

rest of the missile body - Blue FS3510

Wings and Fins - gloss white

Thanks! I saw the 106 pic but dismissed it as a test round since it was on a Dart. The A-6 pic is gold though, thanks! Fred.

My pleasure.

 

Loaded many AGM/ATM/CATM-45's but never loaded a Standard Arm (they weren't cleared on the A-7E), watched the A-6 guys load them few times though.
