Seaslug at the Science Museum.

 

 

 

 

This is a photograph I took at The Science Museum's outstation at Wroughton.  The missile is a display round repainted to represent an operational missile with two exceptions: the brown bands indicating propellant have the word 'Inert' written across them; and it does not have the HSD (Hawker Siddeley Dynamics) logo in front of the serial number, or any other markings on it.  The omissions are my fault as my instructions wern't clear when I had it re-painted before issuing it to the museum.  It now resides in the Midlands Aviation Museum at Coventry.  The keen-eyed amongst you will notice that it is the model for the drawing in Wikipedia.
