FROG model aircraft 1932-1976, R. Lines, L. Hellstrom
Over The Counter
At the Tri-ang Trade Fair (see last month's "Over the Counter") several notable additions to the FROG range of kits were on show.
Firstly the new polystyrene plastic kits: five are currently in production - the Hunter and Sabre at 5s 3d, the Sikorsky S.55 at 5s 9d, the Javelin at 7s 6d, and the Canberra at 8s 6d.
There will be followed by D.H.110, Meteor 8, Venom and Sea Hawk.
The kits are complete and ready to assemble.
They include polystyrene cement, transfers and a stand for mounting the finished model.

"Also from the Merton factory are the plastic scale solids for the Sabre, Westland Whirlwind Helicopter and Hawker Hunter. The Canberra has also been assembled by us. One cannot deny that these are nice models, and very reasonably priced from 5s. 9d. up to 8s. 6d.
For the real enthusiast however, there is plenty of scope for individual improvement on these plastics, and removal of the Clyde-side size rivets on the Canberra is a number one recommendation. Colouring in correct camouflage can be most effectively applied in oil paints not cellulose dopes.
To come in the Frog plastic range, are the De H.110, Meteor 8, and Hawker Sea Hawk, which will round off a nice range of the more popular subjects in service with British Forces today."
