OPPS! just re-read your post and see it is 1 to 2 you're having a problem with. They are on the same shaft and the same shift fork. "normal" problem is worn/damaged syncro ring, next loose nut on rear of shaft/ worn bearings.
When you say "missed" I assume it means it did not go in to 2nd or any other gear? If so, find the rpm difference between 1st & 2nd, say 900 rpm, then drive and let rpm drop 900 and shift firmly. If it goes in it is probably worn syncro ring.
If you were up here (USA) this would be a nice winter project to refresh the gear box, but since you are "upside down"<g> I suspect it will be just another pain.
Still check all the easy stuff first.
Good luck, RGS
