I recently purchased a toy 1/40 scale Hawk Missle Carrier model kit on ebay.
It is of "1960's" vintage and still unassembled in the box. Pieces are still
sealed in a plastic bag. If anyone on the list want's it please let me know
as I was hoping it was of the make and model of my real one, an MX 501 E3,
which it is not. I don't know what mdl and make it is. Call me if you would
like a complete description other than it is "tracked and has 3 missles
loaded on top". I paid $25 for it and am offering it for the same. I'll
pay shipping.


PS Thought I'd pass this along: transcript of radio conversation released
by the US Navy in Oct of 1996.

!st party......Divert your course 15 degrees north.
response....You divert your course 15 degrees south.

1st party.....Again, divert your course 15 degrees north to avoid collision.
response....No, you divert your course 15 degrees south to avoid collision.

1st party.....We are a warship of the US navy, and I say, divert YOUR course
response....And I say, YOU divert your course NOW

1st party....This is the USS Enterprise and I order You to divert your
course immediately to avoid certain collision!
response...And this is a lighthouse, It's your call.
