Hello to all!

Hi everyone

Seeing this site brought memories flooding back!

My first FROG was a Fokker D21 in 1969 - a plane I'd never heard of then. The following one was a Hawker Tempest, then a Mitsubishi Zero. I remember the Tempest had the option of a fake spinning propellor, which I've never seen since.

My mother was in hospital at the time and my dad used to buy them in the newsagents as a treat to cheer me up. I seem to remember them being much cheaper than Airfix, or was that just some offer they had at the time? It seems like they were sold everywhere for a while.

I later started on the bombers, but eventually went back to Airfix and Revell.
