Blue Streak kit resources
Britain's nuclear deterrent was cancelled before it was complete, and was obsolescent before that. Nevertheless, the Blue Streak was a powerful missile of the Atlas class, and would form the basis of the Europa launcher.
The kit stands 6" tall and includes 4 resin parts, 2 aluminum tubes, a stand (1 resin part and 2 aluminum tubes), and instructions. No decals are included.
Blue Streak Kit Instructions
The completed model.
I chose to paint the LOX tank white, which would be the color at launch. Before fueling, it's aluminum.
The striping was accomplished by hand, and I don't know any other way to do it.
Without an ALPS printer, I'm unable to make a decal with both white AND clear (or silver).
A Blue Streak in operational service would have probably looked a lot like the Thor's based
in Great Britain. Unfortunately I don't have a digital photo of one yet, but they were painted
white and featured a prominent roundel insignia, as well as a vehicle number.
