SOLD! part-built 1/72 FROG Jaguar?
« on: November 30, 2020, 04:14:57 am »
During my recent dive into the deep stash I uncovered a part built 1/72 FROG Jaguar. I don't want it any more. The kit isn't the best and I did a poor job making it. Needs a lot of PSR etc.

It comes with a choice of cockpits - I chose the 2 seat trainer version but I still have the single seat section and both canopy. You could probably switch them over if you like.
All parts to complete it are there, wheels, pilots, 4 very big missiles and some French markings.

Before I chuck it in the bin, will anybody pay the postage and take it off my hands?

Glad it found a loving home.  We might have to start paying folks to take FROG kits!   :wacko:

I have only built a few Frog kits, and some of their progeny and found they are not that bad considering when they were made. I only really have a problem with modern expensive kits that leave you questioning your sanity after attempting to build them.

I have a bagged He162 which is probably a collectable item by now. On Ebay right now sellers are demanding 15+  :o

I also have a bagged-up Frog/Novo Shackleton which I have a firm plan for but no desire to get started. I would rather do one of the modern Shacks but the prices scare me.

Lay in stocks of 350 grit wet and dry, even the worn Novo ones have ZILLIONS of over scale rivets! 40000 of them by my calculations!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I think it was just the fuselage as it was the crew which said it. Defiantly not good when you had to ware foul weather gear to fly through clouds.
