Anyone have any suggestions for what color of blue to paint training rounds like sidewinders on aggressor aircraft?

Cheers!

I was originally going to say Model Master "Cobalt Blue" (from the figure paints), but after a little checking, it appears that MM FS 35109 (what it says on the bottle) may be a better match. To confuse things more, I've seen photos that range from a Bright Blue (Testors square bottle) to an Intermediate Blue (MM 1720).
Those colors might not be spot-on, but they should get you close.

Awesome, thanks!
