Hi Giorgio

 

Your Sea Venom, is very welcome, and of course as it's your build you may naturally add as much detail as you wish.

 

I very much look forward to following your build.

 

kindest regards Pat

 

Thanks Pat !

The kit should already include a metal instrument panel and seats, I have a Falcon vacform canopy, I'll see what else modify.

I realized that I also have a couple Frog kits in the sale section... if they're not sold by the time the GB starts I may try these ones too

Last November I was given a load of old kits. Included are two very early Frog kits; a Hawker Hunter and a Gloster Javelin. They have no boxes or decals.

As I hve no boxes, decals or even instructions all I can say is the Hunter is pre-74 and the Javelin is pre-75. They are really basic, eg wheel well doors moulded closed, bobble head pilots, I'll just be painting them and putting generic markings on them

I might have copies of instructions and painting guides, if that's any help ?

I have a couple of Blackburn Sharks in the stash and although a challenge, I think a Swordfish predecessor is in order. I recall I picked up a Martlet in its original poly bag packaging so that's something to dog out. (You all probably realise by now I like building Martlets). A stash review might unearth a couple more including some Eastern European Frogspawn. I think there's a Novo Shackleton; is that Frog?

Hi 825

All great choices.

I don't think I've ever seen a Novo Shackleton, you might have a collectors item !

Can you post a picture ?

cheers Pat

Pat it's not Novo but a Chematic boxing. According to Scalemates it's definitely Frogspawn and dates from 1999. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/135522-chematic-avro-shackleton

Nice one 825

 

I have an unbuilt one of these, which I feel guilty about every time I am admiring a newly completed one that has been built.

 

I would love to see one included in this GB, 

 

cheers Pat

I have a mk21 Beaufighter staring at me from the stash and, barring discovery of a Beaufort, get that into the GB.

In The Stash I have a Buccaneer, in the original FROG box, no less.   It was originally earmarked for the Buccaneer STGB at the end of the year, but the recent announcement from Airfix has changed my plans.

 

The FROG Buccaneer will now make an appearance in this GB.

I have several to choose from

 

Blackburn Shark

Whitley

Novo Vickers Vimy 

Novo Wallace

 

Thanks and all the best

Chris

Hi Chris

 

You are very welcome 3/4 of your choices are biplanes which would be great to see. Especially as I could do with some tips on how to do them !

 

cheers Pat

Hi Pat, thanks very much. I was looking to do the Shark, although could be tempted by the Vimy.  It depends on the building work as if still ongoing then I may not have time to do the Vimy. We'll see what I can do.

All the best

Chris

Hi!

I have a Frog 1/32 Mig-15 if that counts? 😜

Joking aside I would love to participate please? My dad has a few of these kits kicking about that I'm sure I could persuade him to part with...
