What kit was missing from the Frog range ?

Unread postby N113 fan » Mon Nov 19, 2012 11:04 am

Over the years, that the company was in business what kit should Frog have added to their kit list ?

Please post what you think.

The idea for this post is to look at aircraft, cars and ships of the era that may be in your opinion should have been added to the Frog range. For example a Grumman F-14 Tomcat appeared just after the company stopped making kits. So we are talking aircraft, cars and ships that were around in the fifties, sixties and early seventies of that Frog era.

From the early jet kits the one that is missing for me is a early series 1955 to 1961 the Supermarine Swift shelf head.

Frog seems to be shy of helicopters but in the shelf head era 1955 to 1961 could have had the Westland/Sikorsky Dragonfly helicopter to go with the Whirlwind.

Re-design of the Supermarine N113 prototype to a Supermarine F1, just as they did with the Sea Vixen but much more accurate, so that would be around the time of the last kits. Also fitted with drop tanks, AAM and 1000Ib bombs. O' yes and a refulling probe.

Douglas DC-3 in 1/72nd, 1/144th or 1/96th scales and with BEA markings that is any time in the Frog era, the aircraft is timeless. AMT, Airlines could have had a field day with new decal sheets etc.

A.W. Argosy 1/72nd with RAF and Civil markings around the same time as the Shackleton kit around 1966 or 67. Given the ramp in the back this would be great for dioramas with AFV kits.
