Re: difference between Frog Mirage IIIE/O and Mirage 5D?

I think you'll find the Mirage 5 had a longer, more pointed nose cone.

Re: Buccaneer Mk.2A which underwing weapons?

Hi all I'm not convinced that XV348 carried mantel missiles, as supplied in the Frog kit, Can I get away with two slipper fuel tanks on the inner pylons and SNEB rocket pods on the outer Pylons? This is Honington 1970. There are pics on the web of XV348 carrying slipper tanks and empty outer pylons...

Re: How do I improve the Frog Harrier Mk.1 Ground attack V/Stol?

I think I'd approach it by sanding a small flat area where the port goes, then glue on a piece of plastic card cut to the shape of the flange/plate that goes there. I'd probably just paint the actual camera window black. Good luck.

Re: Frog Hunter F1 as F5 34 Squadron, Suez

Great question but the only answer I can give is "because that's the way the RAF ground crew painted them on". In Operation Musketeer the stripes were painted on in the field and it seems the instructions must have been to NOT overpaint the roundels. In most cases, the underwing serial num...

Seafire F45 from Frog Spitfire F14

This is only part Frog. It's the Frog F14 fuselage mated to the Hawk F22 wing and a Special Hobby F45 rudder (provided by a fellow modeller). The radiators were plunge-moulded copies of those in the Eduard F21 kit. Quite a hybrid but I am pleased with the results and the Frog wing will end up mated ...

The basic shape, like many old Frog kits, was very accurate but some details were missing - notably the wing fences. The fit wa...

Pre 1973 builds

I recently explored a box still in my parents' attic. Based on the newspaper I found in the box, I packed these away in January 1973. Some are pretty awful (Stuka and Mosquito) but some aren't too bad. DH Comet (pretty sure this is the Frog and not the Airfix one) http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/...
