Generally the markings are the same for each D21, but I have noticed that they varied depending on the mission.
Mldixon: Are you accounting for the little bulge for the equiptment bay?
And will there be a booster in the picture? (not to worry, it is easy enough that I can scratch one of these.)
This booster version was the D-21B and was launched from under the wing of the B52H from a added pylon. Only four launches and then the program was ended. I was after the one that sits on top of the A-12 hence the D-21 version. Yes I am buildiing in the bulge. But the operational history of this craft was a complete diaster and it was considered a failure. So I feel no pressure with this model.
