Knocked up a little Junior Spitfire this week. This is a real FROG from plans on Mike S's HoF site, rather than a Pseudo one but this seemed as good a place as any to put it. I still have several pseudo FROGs on the drawing board.

This one is intended for electric. Very cartoon scale but loosely based on the silver Mk 24 Griffon engined spits. And of course I had to model aircraft G from the FR squadron.

Really nice little model. I love the pristine wood finish, roundels and FROG reg.

Very nicely done Jon. Did you print your own balsa, it looks very good

Thanks chaps  Smiley

Dave - the weight of the airframe is a scratch under 8g with not much effort to use light balsa. The motor weighs 2g and so with the battery I expect it'll end up about 12-13g.

Chris - the markings are all cut from coloured tissue except the hinge lines which are black pen. The roundels are cut with a compass cutter and the tissue was applied with thinned PVA onto raw balsa. I much prefer to use dope to do this but couldn't be bothered with the extra surface prep required. The water of the PVA method causes the tissue shape to distort if you're not careful and it's harder to slide/position the bits like you can with dope. But it was a quick 'get it done' sort of build. There are also roundels on the bottom of the wing to avoid warps. The canopy frame is cut tissue applied with glue stick.

Hi Jon,
Love the spitfire and your Tucano. Have you put plans for the tucano in the plan’s gallery?
Cheers,

Eh up Dave. Good to hear from you.

I'm afraid I never did draw up the plan - although I still have all the original scans and details. It's on the looong list of stuff I ought to do before starting something new. (But never do  Roll Eyes)

That is very nice. Did you vacuum-form the canopy?

That's a very impressive quick build Jon looks like a nice, carefully done slow build to me  Grin

It was plunge moulded - again a very quick and dirty method Cheesy
