Mica and Magic missiles, Are there any in resin?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if there is resin mica and magic missiles? The Revell Mica in the Rafale kits are rubbish to put together I ended up throwing them out.

I didn't measure those missiles, nor I'm the biggest specialist on them, but they seemed correct to me. Perhaps you could warn us what's wrong with them

PS: The last phrase was without any kind of irony. I really want to know...

If he is referring to the Revell 1:48 Rafale kit then I can tell that putting them together is indeed not an easy task. The seeker is separate of the body so you need patience to align it properly and some filler to get them smooth.

Thanks for that V.P. I thought l'Arsenal were coming out with Mica missiles too, but I don't see them on their website. The Renaissance Micas look good.

The Revell Magic missiles look good, but they are a bit of a pain to put together. In my samples, there is a little mould misalignment on the rear fins and body, and trying to correct that on a cylinder takes a lot of effort. It's not difficult as such, just very time consuming.
