I think it was Knightflyer, and it was 4 years ago..... http://www.whatifmodellers.com/index.php/topic,38759.msg636569.html#msg636569

That said, I wouldn't mind one for myself.

I wouldn't say no to a cheap Sea Vixen either!

Shouldn't all FROG kits be cheap?  ;D

It's not a great kit, but I managed to pick up a Frog DH.110 kit for a pretty good price.  Likely won't build it but will clone bits to convert a Sea Vixen FAW.1 to the earlier configuration.  I have a Frog Sea Vixen back in the remote stash that clearly came from near the end of the production run, it was shot with multiple colors of plastic and you can see the flow of the plastic through the molds.

I thought it might be me  ;D, but thought there might have been a more recent seller (was it really 4 years ago?) that was being referred to

I remember the Sea Vixen's selling well, but I'll check and see if I have any left. Now if you want a Sea Venom or Shackleton (McColm???) I have a few of each of those  ;D

You might think that but a trader at Southern Expo wanted 15 for a FROG Sea Vixen.  :o
He still has it.  :rolleyes:

What sort of price is a Shackleton likely to be?  I'm suffering from a temporary personal  financial hiccup at the moment, having just bought part of  Madame's birthday present, but the imperial exchequer will be solvent again in a month or two.

Hank, I have a Modelcraft Frog re-pop of the Sea Vixen. No box but in a sealed bag. Yours for a fiver if you want it and I can drop it off over the weekend if you wish.

No problem, probably Thursday if that's ok.

Probably take that long to find it !
