I'm looking for sources of scale data related to the Honest John missile. I've gathered a lot of easy-to-find stuff including Harry Stine's drawings, photos, etc. but still have a lot of questions that are unanswered.

Recently, I saw a 2.6" HoJo that was beautiful. Painted olive drab, and the modeler had included lots of details such as a hatch opening, stenciling, etc. I'd love to replicate those efforts, but need more data to go on.

Purchased Peter Alway's book on Paint Schemes for the V2--(WONDERFUL BOOK) and realized that paint scheme information is a pretty big hole in my library of Honest John information.

Considering that the Honest John rivals the V2 in terms of long term popularity for modelers, inclusion in many manufacturers inventory, etc. you'd think that scale information would be easier to obtain.

Suggestions?

Bob I remember that. I was and still willing to get involved with seeing that kind of material reproduced for the hobby to have access to and enjoy. If anyone has leads and copies lets hear from you and get them reproduced.
