I'm thinking gold or silver. It has a sort of "First Spaceship On Venus" feel about it.

I agree with graylensman, it has a kinda-retro 50's style to it.

Maybe Rustoleum silver paint with a black cockpit windshield, and the obligatory "XR-1" (or something similar) on one fin. And a hatch! It has to have a hatch of course, with a little ladder you can prop up against it for display.

Given your taste in hot sauces, I think either 50's style hot-rod flames or tombstones would be appropriate.

Now it needs an alien skull-and-crossbones to be the Pirate Scourge Of The Dark Nebula!
