Yes please, just give me time to locate something other than a Novo Javelin re-box that I already have! I seriously need to get some new, affordable transfers that also contain the roundels and fin flash first!

 

All the best, gribbit, gribbit

Oh, why not. I have about 15 Frog-tooled kits in the stash, including 5 I bought only last year. Frog was not a major part of my early modelling years, probably because the company had folded before I started modelling in earnest. So my limited early encounters with Frog models were mostly Novo reboxes, as well as some Revell reboxes that I didn't know at the time were from Frog.

 

Since we already have two classic builds earmarked for 2022, I assume this can't take place until 2023.

How did I miss this one Pat?? 

Another one of those happy Classic kit modelling periods where I think I built my most rewarding (read energy sapping) model so far. 

I also ended up buying so many Frog kits during the first GB so you’d better add my name to the 2nd Frog Squad list too. 

Cheers and thanks.. Dave

Yep, I have a Russian knock off Beaufort.

 

So count me in Pat!

Wow those Russians don't hang about, I haven't even seen the new Airfix one yet and they have copied it already  ! :giggle:

Seriously it is always great to see a Beaufort built although if my Russian repop Frog Lancaster is anything to go by it will be Flash-tastic  !

Hi @klr

Yes if / when we are successful I would imagine it in 2023.

Who knows there may be another classic GB to accompany it to mark another significant historical even, say 50 years since the Airfix factory canteen stopped serving Spotted Dick at lunchtimes !

Hi @Rabbit Leader

Great to have you back with us mate.

I dont suppose you still have that fancy list of yours from the last one do you :whistle:

Do you think it would be a bit early to start looking at potential build candidates in the stash ?

Cheers Pat

Oh yeah count me in!  

 

Lots to chose from but maybe my original Frog Squad GB attempt the Avro  Lincoln with Python engines might requalify if it didn’t reach 25 percent completed?

I'm making an executive decision, the Lincoln is definitely in.

All we need to do now is get enough votes !

Stopped serving Spotted Dick at lunchtime!...Ye Gods is nothing safe!

Please sign me up Pat, I still have a fair few original FROG kits in the stash, I'm tempted to follow the Canberra build done so nicely by Dave AKA @Rabbit Leader I have the Modeldecal 16 Sqn sharks mouth decals for this kit.  Then there is the impressive B-47 kit that I have lots of AM for.  Just to remind you in the last FROG GB I built this:
