Revell Lightning

I see that Hannants now have this in stock. Anyone seen one yet? Is it a new tool or is it a re-pop of the old Hasegawa or even Frog kits?

Which scale? I think they made ones from 1/144 up to 1/32.

That's a shame. The moulds for that must be nearly 40 years old. I have to wonder at the pricing for the kit. It costs a tenner. If it was priced at a fiver I might be willing to buy one simply to graft the belly tank and wing leading edges on to the forthcomng MPM kit but I'm not willing to pay a tenner for spare parts.

My apologies. I should have made that clear. I meant 1/72.

The word "Frog" was a clue. Originally made by Rovex!

I had the Frog (Penguin) MiG 21 when it was new and the mould looked like it was completely shot back then! It was a shame as Frog made some important types not covered by Airfix at the time.

Wasn't it pretty much a scaled down version of the 1/32 kit? I remember it had all the removable panels & internal extras.

I think not. I believe it's the ancient Frog kit after knocking around Eastern Europe for 30 years.

Rovex was the parent company for the Frog label for several years.

Frog Penguin kits were long gone when the MiG-21 first flew. The Frog MiG-21 was the Hasegawa kit.
