FROG 1:72 Wyvern was created by gepete





Hi Chaps

AWESOME concept. I have something on the go that qualifies. A few of us at Akld IPMS are building kits for a FROGS in February showcase in obviously February next year. This is the old FROG Wyvern that I rescued for $3 at swapmeet that was glued together haphazardly so I've disasembled it with liquid cement, cleaned it up and reassembled it with some rescribing. I'm super chuffed to have found an old FROG skybase (remember those) to pose it on. Here's my Work in Progress. Love the guidelines you have, long live the spirit of modelling past and present. By the way check out these ubercool jigsaw puzzles with Roy Huxley artwork (matchbox). Cheers Peter

Here is the FROG WYVERN now finished. Picked it up glued together by somebody who had 10 thumbs and liked to leave his thumbprints all over the model. Took it apart with Tamiya ultra-thin cement, sanded, scribed and reassembled it so it was symmetrical and painted er up. Had lots of fun, nice chunky looking plane and put it in flying mode on an original FROG Skybase stand for the full retro effect.
