in operational field units? What markings did they have?
I e-mailed the historian on the website
http://www.mace-b.com/38TMW/Missiles , guy named Russ & he replied they were a grey metal color similar to the one on display at the Air Force museum in Dayton. I have seen pictures of over all white ones (test vehicles) to over all orange ones, all had different color nose cones (white to black). Also have seen color pictures of the Terracruzer in OD green & SAC Strata Blue (available here:http://store.rapcoparts.com/25uairfostbl.html).

Ed Bisconti (scifi88 e-bay seller) has a couple of decal sheets available on e-bay but they look similar to the orginal Renwal & Revell History Makers kit decals but with additional markings for the Terracruzer tractor. They could be a start to building an operation deployed vehicle.

So any help from any of you guys who actually worked with the Mace/Terracruzer weapons system in a deployed operaional unit would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

well the kit itself can only represent the prototype

As the fuselage shape is just wrong in the back half for a service missile. If you can live with that, the missile can be several colors.

Natural metal with zinc chromate yellow is common

Note also the trucks can be assorted colors, as can be the trailer. OD or blue were standard.

Missiles could also be grey, or orange as indicated in the kit.

There was a thread on a forum here of mace remains found in the field.

....and check Google Images. The USAF or SAC museum had one in silver with full markings. Adios, Larry.

Field Artillery brings dignity to what otherwise might be merely a vulgar brawl.
