Who in their right mind called a missile DERBY for goodness sake?  :o

We'll be having Bromsgroves and Granthams soon.........  :banghead:

Nah, our Eurofighter's will be armed with Cheltenham Gold Cups or more likely Badminton Horse Trials

Slightly surprised that you don't have this armed with a couple of Derby air to air missiles seeing that it's an Israeli upgrade.

Fantastic result as always and I agree about the take off shot.

Thank you very much. It already has contemporary Python IIIs, I had foru of them left from the Trumpeter J-8II I converted into the Hawker Harpy some time ago.
Not certain when the Derby was developed/introduced, but I'd assume that came later than the kit's 1999 timeframe (since it is a development of the Python IV, AFAIK?).

Sorry, your right of course Dizzy. The development of the Derby missile is later than your time frame. And for those who want to know more about the missile can follow this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Python_%28missile%29#Derby

Excellent, but why DERBY of all names?  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

I think that your going to have to ask the manufacturer why, you could always use Alto which it was its altonative name  ;D
