F203 - Canberra Mk.8/12

Hello everyone!

 

This is my first foray into the Group Build area for a good while - I particularly enjoyed the OG Frog GB. I will not be able to be as prolific in this GB, but I am keen to say that I have sourced this beauty for the princely sum of £5!

My dad even dug out a sky base for me! Albeit broken, the plastic has embrittled over the years, but easily fixed! My dad recalls that they never used to be particularly poseable, having nicked some oil to ensure smooth movement of the ball and socket joint!

 

Box contents are pristine:

Even more pleasantly surprising is that the 50 year old decals look very much usable:

Can’t wait to get started! But will have to wait until my model club D-Day build has been complete. 
 

cheers

Welcome aboard Ash, always great to see Frog's Canberra.

It's a lovely kit, a little basic in some areas, however adding the additional detail is what makes these kits so much fun. 

Cheers and best of luck.. Dave.

Sorry Pat I could have sworn I had replied to this. 
 

Unfortunately this one will have to wait for a Frog Squad III GB. I am expecting the arrival of a little one next month and as such I have had to prioritise other things and a couple of other builds ( a retirement gift and another for my local Model club’s D-Day comp). 
 

apologies again, I was really looking forward to this one.

Well I have to give you a like for the baby news!
 

The kit looks super and it will look great for Frog Squad VII ten years or so, when you finally get some free time again :)

 

Regards,

Adrian

Thanks Adrian,

 

at least I can follow threads like yours with great interest!

 

As for my building prospects, the end is nigh! 🤣
