If you are not going to repaint, I would leave it as-is.

I have no intentions of repainting it, or altering it in any way. I Thought the decals might help. But I like leaving old built kits as I find them, especially this one. Just getting what feedback I can on this. I’m sure I’ll just leave it as is. I sent pics etc to Vern. He sent me a pic of one G Harry Stine gave him in 1958 to help promote rocketry. It’s white with a black fin, and a silver stripe painted around top of the BT…. it’s really cool. Every one of these I find or see are painted differently. Guess that makes them unique,.,.,., heck, here’s the pic of Vern’s,,,,, plus the two I have together now.
