Hallo. I'm from the Netherlands, now 81 but still active with aircraft modeling in 1/72, most Frog. My first was a Spitfire, made her in 1962. Why ? Well, I saw many of the WW2 aircraft and once when kits were available, I made them. I remember the V2
going up, Lancasters and the B 17 dropping food near my home very well and some years later the Oxfords, Mitchell's and Fireflies on Valkenburg Airfield nearby. That's long ago now.
OK, that's enough for the moment, goodbye, Cornelis.

Greetings from Alberta,Canada! I am in my forties now started modelling in the seventies with Frog kits in Jamaica west indies,and also aurora and airfix and the odd revell or mongram.preferred 1:72 scale but now open to larger scales. cheers~! :idea: am especially fond of box art as am a visual artist as well as gardener by trade.L have a desert bf 109 f by frog but l cant bring myself to open it and build it-its still in its plastic bag against the cardboard backing,very unique method of packaging.frog was the best,wish they were still in the business l'd buy em all the time,just to look at the art.

Another greeting from Alberta, Northern Alberta that is. I'm just shy of 61 and built my first FROG kit back in the late 60's. I still have some in my stash. They are all listed elsewhere on this forum.
