That is just stunning Serge, I have an EE Shark kit & I know how much work you've done to work magic like that. Bravo.  :)

There is a saying in the UK about turning a sow's ear into a silk purse, meaning taking something not very good, and making it into something brilliant. You've done just that. Excellent job.

I have one of these to do, if I can achieve a fraction of the quality displayed in your build I will be a very happy modeler! Top notch work and well done!!

What they all said. This is the first model of the 'Shark' built and looks fab. I have the older offering in the stash, so one day....

There were a few interior shots floating around on the internet that I copied and have somewhere.

Beautiful work. I've always admired the Frog kit as a great example of what they could do well. I have one in the stash just for the building of it as I'm not particularly interested in the aircraft or period.

Serge that is an absolutely stunning model, particularly in mind of the basic starting point. Exquisite detailing and beautiful paintwork. Simply stunning!!

 

Cheers

Sweet build! Nothing better than seeing a humble kit like this one transformed into a real scale model!

 

Thanks for sharing!

Amazing work, especially considering the age of the moulds. 

 

I made the Frog version years ago & can guarantee it wasn’t a patch on yours.

No wonder you have not attacked the Beaufort yet (hint hint!)).  That is unbelievable and your joke “out of the box with a few bits” is hilarious.  Over last week a few stunning “British brute biplanes” on here but this surely has to be a contender for build of the year!!  Magnificent.

Wow!

 

It's hard to imagine that you've built that excellent model out of that old kit and that it's 1/72! Beautiful.

 

Those interior pictures are from this book:

Absolutely beautiful and a joy to behold, you are a master modeller Serge and a magician to turn a 50 year old FROG into such a masterpiece.

That would be fantastic if it were 1/32, add to that the fact its an old mould (and 1/72) and its out of this world. Brilliant !
