Can never have  too many erm.....red deans ;D ;D
I am going to make  some  of my own versions of  British air to air missiles,  with not  so serious names  as I  have  a load of missile  bodies and  a load of large Russian  missiles  that can be modified.  Tweed  squirrel,  Taupe Bishop being  two of their names  :-X ;D

Given that Red Dean weighed 1300lbs and was 16ft long, you're looking at what's basically an air-to-air Exocet, so don't limit yourself to 'proper' air-to-air missiles as donors.

Hya H, I  also have some  kormoran bodies that should fit the bill, and  some Harpoon bodies  too. I  will have a go at building  something very similar  to red hebe too.

1/48 missiles make for a good basis for large 1/72 missiles.

Don't worry Chris, i've burnt all the former church pews Chris furnished the naughty box with and replaced them with bean bags, an esky, a deep fat fryer, hot and cold running nymphettes and a PS4.   :thumbsup:

Given a knife to peel back the insulation and a couple of matchsticks, we can overcome that small difficulty.

Being a lazy git I had thought of using 1/48th Firestreaks on a 1/72nd Can.

That'd be a Red Dean then.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
