If you think about it, why would a warshot actually need to be painted at all. The missiles were made of spun fiberglass, assembled at a base in canisters, trucked to a loading dock, lowered through the canister into the vertical tubes and then sealed with the door. No one needs to see if it is painted or not. Painting would only add to the weight and thus reduce range.--Previous Message--
