  1. Hi Wez It must be the first Heller Bobkit Peugeot 205 Turbo 16. Année création 1986 as they say in the foreign language. Maybe a bit late but I think the decals are from Tour the Corse '84
  2. Oh yes, but I hade some busy weeks before holiday and saved the pictures for later. A bit of fighting to straighten up one of the wings by Jan H, auf Flickr Down to the spray booth with the rest of the Frog family and I can tease you with a kit that doesn't have a build thread yet. by Jan H, auf Flickr Aircraft grey-green and I hope I didn't miss any spots that show up later by Jan H, auf Flickr I usually try to glue the seams exactly to prevent any edges but this one slipped a bit when it lay to dry over the night so a bit of puttying and sanding required. And of course, those gigantic skis are really cool and almost a must when you build a finnish plane. by Jan H, auf Flickr
  3. I almost spilled out my beer when I felt someone me. I've spent a week at the west coast with no worries of anything but holiday plans. Well then, I did some before I left and the plan was a parallel build but an Academy always looks better when still in the box. The Academy is bulgier, bigger cowling ring. stubbier prop. If you look at the wheels, the Frog look like the real thing (more or less) Academy, why turn the wheels around and set the hard edged (brake) side on the outside? by Jan H, auf Flickr I'll try to modify the Academy landing gear to fit in the Frog, differs a bit in size and placing, and I'll build the Academy wheels up by Jan H, auf Flickr Some dull green paint in the cockpit by Jan H, auf Flickr The Frog kit got a bulkhead to prevent to see through the kit when the landing gear is down by Jan H, auf Flickr This is how I left it more than a week ago. The Frog kit has the outer guns removed and panel lines scraped off to make a four-gun Wildcat Mk V by Jan H, auf Flickr
  4. I've got this book with part of it, approx. 24 pages of kits, art.no. and release time by Jan H, auf Flickr Some kits missing and there is always errors but a good start
  5. If you have the Bleriot XI, check the standing giant and the tiny little stick monkey that comes with the kit. Almost the same with the Lysander kit. If you are a spy that have landed in foreign country, you certainly stick out if you are 2.2 meter tall
  6. I had the Eastern Express boxing of it and showing a grey/grey over light blue scheme. The kit is good but the Eduard was better so I swapped it. To find the right camo for Ivan Kozhedub's White 27 can be hard. You have some info here Did you get any other decals for it or was white 27 the only choice?
  7. A double build with an original F242F together with the Minicraft improved copy released in 1987 The Academy boxart with an FM-1 but the simplified decal sheet doesn't have all the necessary decals for a VC-13 aircraft. Also the F4F-4 kit has 6 cannons and an FM-1 only 4... by Jan H, auf Flickr Minor differencies here, mostly fin and rudder. The Minicraft recessed panel lines on the fuselage are sharp but very deep by Jan H, auf Flickr and the same here... The Frog kit lacking a landing gear part. Scratch or wheels up, let's see... by Jan H, auf Flickr Frog decals for a 881 NAS Tirpitz attack Wildcat/Martlet V = FM-1 = 4 guns modification VF-9 Operation Torch F4F-4
  8. I've got this glue bomb as a "gift" and it has been in my stash since 2005 and I've never got to bin it as it might be possible to rescue it by Jan H, auf Flickr It's one of the F-numbers that's not in the list yet F417 Frog packed by Revell as a Matchbox and it's over 25%. Tube glued and I won't try to "mend it with a hammer" to divide it into smaller pieces Parts missing but it's possible to build a B-2 and rebuild an improved cockpit by copying the interior parts of my Dragon Ar 234 Is it OK to put it in a build thread?
  9. I think it's possible with the F194. Smack together the V1 flying bomb and put it in the gallery and follow up later with the Spitfire XIV
  10. I did find a picture of BL-117 with the turret retracted. I'll see what I have in my spares box Some of the finnish Blenheims did have modified bomb bay doors too but I think they first came at the 2-Sarja BTW, I've got both your builds as reference. They have helped a lot .
  11. Hello everyone Here's my Eastern Express release of the Frog F190 by Jan H, auf Flickr I want to push for a coming Nordic GB with a finnish Blenheim BL-117 was from the Bristol manufactured Series 1 and was placed at LeLV 44 at the time for the Winter war by Jan H, auf Flickr All parts looking good with barely any flash at all by Jan H, auf Flickr
  12. Hi, look for the Hasegawa K28 to make a colourful saudi Tornado GR.1 by Jan H, auf Flickr by Jan H, auf Flickr or for a Barley grey saudi Tornado F3, go for the Hasegawa K31 by Jan H, auf Flickr by Jan H, auf Flickr together with the Carpena decals by Jan H, auf Flickr at least I would...
  13. I did some archaeology and found these in my stash Frog & Novo - The first I came in contact with in late 70's and early 80's. Novo with selfdisintegrating decals if you mentioned the word water. A Swordfish from Donetsk toys factory sneaked in there too by Jan H, auf Flickr Eastern Express - Later issues with usable decals. Three blobs of Sea Venom canopies, deformed, air blisters etc.. I've never seen a really good one. The IOM-kit, there has the whole moulding a fish-scale structure. The Blenheim must be an Intech rebox but have instruction from The turntable model shop in Luddendenfoot, Halifax. Bought it just for the all black nightfighter scheme but no decals in the bag... bah by Jan H, auf Flickr Hasegawa - Not mentioned at Cocardes but the silver coloured Frog issue has a separate nose cone and less camera openings than the later Hasegawa grey coloured issue by Jan H, auf Flickr Revell - First a lot of flying rivets, F417 Arado Ar234 and a F418 Heinkel He 115 that never was released by Frog. Somewhere in my stash I have the BAC Lightning Hasegawa mould too by Jan H, auf Flickr Academy - Frog origin but with recessed panel lines. Too far from the Frog theme but you can always crosskit the parts between them. They fit well together. by Jan H, auf Flickr
  14. Well then, I'm in And everyone need a Dauntless in their stash, like me by Jan H, auf Flickr
