My next build.......

Unread postby lancfan » Wed Aug 03, 2011 1:11 pm

OK folks, when i have finished the Southern Cross I will want something to do so - pick it yourselves. You have until the Fokker is finished.
The Comet Racer is particularly interesting as when I bought it- it was still sealed in its original cellophane. It was a real buzz opening that box FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME (JUST TO LOOK INSIDE) !

Quite a selection you've got there to choose from. It would be interesting to see how the Frog Comet Racer compares to the Airfix kit, so I'll go for that one.

Thats one vote for the comet Racer- which is a better kit than the Airfix one.

the trailblazers series included standing pilot figures sculped to match each kit- now why don't manufacturers do that today?

I agree... I still have a Comet Racer and will one day find time to build it !!! I also like the Whittle Jet complete with figure and the Bleriot complete with French Flag.....Those were the days

Looking at the quality of these figures it seems a shame that Frog did not include figures in the rest of its range.

Tim, unless their are two more votes for something else the Comet Racer will win as the southern cross build stalls today until a new set of decals is found.

To avoid the same thing happening again a new set of decals for G-ACSP "Black Magic" from the new Airfix boxing will be used.

Here is the winner by one vote by Timj. The kit below it- - - is the model that will follow it.

Good job I voted. :D

I remember building the 'Spirit of St Louis' back in the seventies, I think it was a Novo reissue. A nice kit IIRC.
