How can you lose a whole Crusader?   :o

That'd be really great Greg, thanks a bunch.  :thumbsup:

I think they lost a lot of them at Acre ... ;)

That was rather careless of them.  Did they ever find them again?  ;)

Well we know you can lose half a Crusader, so presumably you just do it twice...

Would you like some Magic's from the 1/72 Airfix kit?

I have several going spare as all the Airfix Mirage F1s I have are earmarked NOT to be armed with Magics

Thank you gentlemen, I'll take all the Magics I can grab at the moment.

I'm starting to like the little things a lot, they're just different enough from a 'winder to BE different.  :thumbsup:

I may also have some from an Academy Super Etendard.  I'll have a look for you.
I've got a day off tomorrow so I can pack up then and post them all Tuesday.
They should take 8 business days to reach you.

Strangely, I have a 1/72 Hasegawa F.1C in my stash & it has 2 x Magics. I think I was going to make it RAAF or AAAC, so it won't need "les missiles franšais".

If you want them, just PM me your address, Kit. :thumbsup:

It seems bizarre that the only FRENCH kit of the Mirage F1 includes 'winders, whereas all the NON-French ones have Magics!  :o

All packed up and ready to go.  I did find the Academy missiles so there will be four in the envelope plus the rails.
I already have your address from when you took out the injunction against me the last thing I sent you.

Rummaging through the box was usefull in other ways as I found an Exocet and a Red Beard I had misplaced plus the 60lb rockets and napalm tanks i'll need for the next GB.

Great stuff, thanks.

I'm SERIOUSLY thinking of putting and entire ring of Magics around that circular wing too, it'd look a total hoot!  ;D ;)

Someone has been sprinkling the unobtainium dust on his fairy cakes again. Snipping out the Magics for you for SMW2019 later.

I have six from the 1/72 Airfix Mirage F1 for you Kit as well as that radome.

You cant have the ones in the Special Hobby kit as they look rather nice.

This model of yours is gonna be fun to see when done!

Things are sounding better and better.  :thumbsup:

I may well have to take up JayBee's idea about making a MUCH larger circular wing to generate enough space to support all the Magics! And I have to find space for two Matra 510s as well!  :o
