they did indeed, as part of a series including Amy Johnson's DH60 Moth, the Bristol 138, and the Westland PV6 of the Everest flight.  Perhaps also a Bleriot - or is that my memory going?

Just found this thread. This question may have been asked before, am I correct in thinking Frog produced a Ryan monoplane and the Alcock and Brown Vimy? I built both of them in my youth but can't remember if they were Frog or another firm.

I'm probably wrong......its an age thing memory not what it was and all that.

Steve

Check out the Frog squad GB Steve examples of both are being built.

Couldn't have put it better myself  !

 

If you have a Frog / Novo / or spawn of these,  please join the Frog Squad GB you will have a lot of fun with all the other builders and supporters of these great kits.

 

Cheers Pat

FROG had a series called "Trailblazers" which featured important aircraft in aviation history. As well as the aircraft listed above, also included was Amy Johnson's DH60, the Bristol 138, The DH88, the Fairey Delta 2 and the Gloster E28/39.

You are right...

Here are the Ryan NYP ''Spirit of St Louis'' (unfortunately not as a Trail Blazers) and the Vickers Vimy from my collection.

I recently took a walk on the Internet at the virtual museum

https://artstudio-3d.ru/www-77/mai/index.html

of the Moscow Aviation Institute

 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moscow_Aviation_Institute

and what do you think I saw there in the museum’s model collection?  Right - NOVO(FROG):

Of course, there are models of our own production

but NOVO (FROG) models in famous aviation institute are something!

Here's a Hotspur II, built mostly from an Airlines kit, except for a few parts from a Novo kit, a seat and  the tail skid.  markings  are painted on except for the fuselage roundel from the spares and the serial, made with a laser printer.  Nice hard silver plastic.  The Novo lit is a very poor rendition with soft plastic and utterly useless decals.  Modeled after a photo of BT551 I found on the net.  Parked next to a CG-4A in the display case, waiting for a Hamilcar.

Imagine finding out thanks to this thread that your paint mule is actually a FROG/NOVO Caravelle...
It's box & other parts have gone in the mists of time, just the basic airframe sans engines. 

 

I did find that AviationMegastore near Schiphol currently has a set of ArkModel kits - former FROG. Some plastic fondling with a Spitfire XVI & V-1 did occur...

Bit off the piste, but does anyone have any idea where I can find examples of the Frog Ready to Fly aircraft, particularly the Intercepter series in foreign markings. This is a real return to childhood since when i was about 7/8 years old I really wanted one but never actually managed it. A few weeks ago I saw one on eBay and am rehooked!

With Covid here for the duration thought it a good idea to stock up with some more Frog & Novo, don't tell the wife though  😉

Hi,

naughty, naughty! You are not supposed to keep secrets from SWMBO... I am sure nobody else does!

Great kits you got! I have the Frog Blenheim Mk I, and I dare say that the decals are miles away from the ones made in Soviet Soyouz.

But it is still a great kit.

 

Have a lot of fun! If your better half catches you out, tell her I sent them to you. Your nose cannot grow any longer.

 

Cheers.

Wow, great to see you have the FROG Wellington 1C, one of the kits that FROG were working on just before their demise.

Here is one built up which I saw at a model show.

Frog Wellington  was reboxed and popular or common in Poland some 25 years ago ( by a company Intech, from Krakow)

About a nostalgia to Frog - recently I restored a bit my Frog Dewoitine 520, which is 55 years with me :)

The big problem with FROG kits, is that once they get under your skin, it is awfully difficult to get rid of the need to build more...

I recently built the Morane Saulnier 406, and I just cannot wait to get cracking with another one.

This was a simple kit that gave me a lot of pleasure building.

That is lovely, and very nostalgic, and no one can say that you have stuck the wheels on at a wonky angle, and lost the tail wheel ....................
