Welcome to the FROG Squad GB (Some Rules and guidance)

Recommended Posts

A warm and heartfelt welcome to yet another Classic kit Britmodeller Group Build. 

 

This time we are honouring one of histories true legends of Plastic kit construction - FROG (Flies Right Off the Ground).

This Group build will be running for just over four months (01 June to 20 October), so there’s plenty of time to jump onboard and build that classic Frog kit thats been lurking in your stash for ages.

 

Here’s a quick note on the GB rules, however as always - if in doubt, check with the GB hosts first! 

 

What is eligible:

 

1. Any kit that was originally designed and issued by ‘Frog’.

2. Any kit that was boxed by ‘Frog’, however designed by another manufacturer (these are mainly Hasegawa kits from the late 60’s).

3. Any kit that can trace it’s original history to a ‘Frog’ mould (commonly called “Frog Spawn”) - these are mainly Novo, Novo Export, Chematic, Revell, Modelcraft, Eastern Express, Donetsk Factory, Gomix, ZTS Plastyk, Ark Models, AMT etc. 

4. Any kit that has been reworked by a new manufacturer, however has clear evidence that it was ‘copied’ from an original ‘Frog’ mould - some Academy kits fall into this category. 

5. In summary, any kit that at one point or another carried a FROG ‘F’ number - Scalemates can help you here. 

6. Your kits can be built straight OOB or you can go to town with as many After Market products you so desire. 

7. Modifications to the basic kit is allowed, however please use the majority of the kits main parts during the construction phase.  

8. A WIP thread must accompany each build and once complete you can showcase your efforts by placing up to five photos in the GB Gallery. 

9. Due to the vast volume of entries anticipated, an end of GB vote to determine an overall winner is unlikely to occur. In the hosts eyes, all GB entrants are winners so we should all be happy with that. 

10. Feel free to encourage your fellow FROG modellers along the way by leaving as many nice comments and hitting the ‘Like’ emoji frequently! 

 

Special Addendum: Given the age / antiquity of the very earliest kits produced by FROG and the fact that there may be no available examples still below 25% assembly, a refurbishment build involving some of the constituent parts will be considered acceptable. 

 

The intention of the Classic Group Build is to stroll down memory lane and perhaps take a second look at some of these pioneering plastic kits from yesteryear. Although we certainly have a preference to showcase original Frog produced kits, we have opened the eligible criteria just enough to encourage as many modellers to join in as possible. These Classic GB’s are always great, so please stay within the rules, don’t take things too seriously and (as always) have a lot of FUN.  

 

Please feel free to ask any questions to @JOCKNEY, @Rabbit Leader or @vppelt68 should further clarification be required. 

 

I would like to use the Group Build banner below please feel free, it's now regulation size, and if you can read it without glasses you are either telling fibs or very lucky !

Cheers and happy FROG modelling, Pat, Dave & V-P.
