I was torn between painting it like the image on the tag or some more real-rocket-like scheme. I didn't do either, but somewhat blended these options. I didn't really fill anything except the hole where the tag was stapled to the body. I shot one coat of white primer and sanded off the larger splinters. I laid on a white gloss base coat and then painted the rest with brush-on Testor's. I added the red rail buttons from my dead Big Brute and covered the access hole with an MDRA sticker.
