Not up to the standard of the models usually posted on this forum but I enjoyed making them.

At least you took some decent colour - I`m about to finish a Frog Spittie, and I messed her up with flaky paint :-(
Yours look really clean, compared to mine!
I´ll try to distract from my bad paint job, by weathering a bit more than usual...

Hi Crashpilot,all my models look good from six feet,any closer and the flaws are obvious.I don't post very often as my models are not good enough for this forum,These two I got lucky, they look decent from six feet.

Wow! That is a neat pair.
The Vengeance is particularly handsome!

Cheers,

I think we've told you before, don't worry about standards, we'll like them whatever!!. These two look smart and neat, thanks for putting them on.
:grin:

I fully agree, the best thing about this forum is the fact no one worries about the standard of the builds on display, we have all been there and got the T-Shirt, please do show us your builds, if they are anything like these two cracking builds, you should be proud to display them.

I’m a great fan of the old Frog kits, they are simple but do tend to have accurate shape and can still be found for much less than the more complex modern versions of the same subjects, plus Frog issued lots of subjects not made by the other manufacturers.

Keep up the great work.

Regards
Splash

Yep, keep 'em coming Ken, especially as you'll be building classic kits all the way now and they are always good to see

Don't put yourself down - those are two cracking builds.

I love these old FROG kits, simple to built but look good in shape. I've hardly touched a model since the end of september but when I have it's been this one.

Keep up the great work!

Cheers

Stuart

Gotta agree with everyone else, and especially Stupot: those are two nice-looking models, particularly the Vengeance. That is a model that I've always wanted to build and add to my collection of RAAF SWPA aircraft, and I'm glad to say I found one not all that long ago, so yours is an inspiration to crack on and build it!

Very nice, both of them. :beer:

Very nice. I haven't seen the Vengeance built before and your looks great. Very reminiscent of a Pterodactyl with that cranked wing!
