FG.1 Sparrow missile colors

Recommended Posts

I am working on Fujimi's FG.1 Phantom and do not have pictures of the Sparrow missile

colors. Were they white with radome tan noses or white with light gray noses? I am

aware that the Royal Navy used Skyflash missiles but I believe that was in 1978 after

the particular plane I am modeling was gone.---John

Sparrows (AIM-7E2/3) were white with a light gray nose. As far as I know SkyFlash didn't get into service with the RN and there were relatively few around when I joined 29 Sqn in early 1980, so assuming you are modelling an FG1 still in Navy service then white it is.
