Frog's legacy,1/72 RAF Mitchell.

Recommended Posts

Hi folk's My entry will be this piece of modelling archeology,Frog's oldie in a seventies boxing I'm planning to do the box option new roundel's will be needed

but I hope to be able to use the codes.

To be honest it's not that bad a kit certainly no better or worse than Airfix's original Mitchell which I hope we'll see a couple of in this GB.

My first Mitchell was this kit, way back in the late 60's.

Hi Steve

Delighted to see another classic Frog kit getting built.

You have managed to save one for the hopefully successful Nostalgia Frog GB I trust ? ;)

Good luck with this one, I always fancied a British Mitchell over the American version, so much more civilised !  :pipe:

cheers Pat

Morning folk's,I think I could have finished a small kit in the time this one  took to clean up all that flash and as the moving part's were all the rage

back in the day Sixteen  pieces make up the tail halves alone,anyway a start has been made.

Curious about using Tamiya Spitfire instructions to build a Frog Mitchell, but it appears to be working quite well so far. Cheers! :D

Wheel's,wing's engines all prettymuch the same:D

Blimey, I thought the Italeri kit was sparse on the detail front!  :o

 

Sure you'll make up for it though.  :coolio:

Hi Tony,not bad better than the Boston and Blenhiem I have, that said this dam things stalled at the moment I was gleaning up the fuselage join

and two of the windows fell in so before it hit the wall I gently re-boxed it till I'm in the mood:D

Oh dear,.....can you not just leave them and glaze them with Kristal Klear at the end? That is what I would do mate,

Cheers

Looks good! I have an Old Airfix B-25 to do but given that I'm working on the Frog Beaufort at the mo it may be a retro twin too far for me. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this one.

 

Regards,

Adrian
