First build this month; the ancient FROG He-162 Volksjager. This really is a basic kit, but don't let that discourage you! This is my second one of these - the header paper below comes from my first in th eealry 1970s, when I really did pay 20p for it !

Built "out the bag", with the exception of a paper roll inside the (otherwise see-through) engine intake.

Excellent build Fred of such a venerable (if not venerated!) kit; I remember this one from my childhood, and it certainly looked nothing like yours does!

Lovely build and a real nostalgia hit with the header card and mention of the 20p price tag.

Lovely job! By coincidence I received this exact same kit as a Christmas present from my good lady, in the original bag too. I hope it comes out as good as yours.

Nice one, Fred, that is a great build of that classic Frogger.

Really sharp. I built the Revell issue and overall it looks the part.

Great to see an old kit get the treatment!
