Ok, I'll have that added. Wondering if you'd consider the simplification of doing Frogs, though, instead?Embarrassed Your call, but it would give us some more options. Either way, I'll figure out something...Tongue Tied Lol

 

 

 

...absolutely. I was thinking along the lines of these guys if it fits within the rules, i.e. the Dodge "Dart" and the "Phrog" helicopter. Does that fit or does it need to be more literal and we have to include the object? I got specific thinking the poison dart frog had lots of color patterns and 3 different things to do with it in terms of poison, dart, and frog. Stop me if I've strayed from the fold here, lol i may very well have. Lots of time to rethink this as we don't start till January right? Feel free to give me a course correction skipper Yes

 

Well, I think we should be specific with one main thing that needs to be incorporated. I.e.--have to incorporate Frog or Dart. You can technically do Poison Dart Frog, but I think going with that would indicate the necessity of incorporating a clear poison dart frog connection with the model (not Dart alone, Poison alone, or Frog alone). The trick with the Dodge Dart would be making the frog connection clear; for the Phrog, the trick would be making the specific "poison dart" connection clear. Because it's more specific than just a generic Frog, Poison Dart Frog would naturally be more difficult to comply with and incorporate. Geeked

I will say in researching and trying to find anything for poison dart frog, I did discover the Matilda FROG Flame-Tank and the Convair F2Y Sea Dart!

Hmmmmmmmm, that's interesting. Something to think about.

 

I'm sitting at the beach right now and I saw Denis Villeneave's version of 'Dune'* the other week. 

So I'm thinking 'SAND' as an ingredient.

You could do a piece of military hardware that fought in the desert. Or with light brown sandy camo. 

Or a car with a surf board or with a light brown 'sandy' interior. 

That should give people a wide option of different stuff you can work with.

 

Any opinons???

Sand or Spice Gam... just saying.

BTW, not sure if I'm joining.  I overcomitted on group builds this year so I'm trying to show some restraint... but I have to tell you it's fun bashing these things up in my head and poking around on the web.

Thanks,

I just got back from a project in Manoa, where there was this little green and black frog hopping along inside the home.  Me and one of the contractors checked it out, and it turned out to be one of those poison dart frogs!

I apologize for the poor quality photo, but he kept running away from me!  We let him out the front door.  Invasive species, yes, but I could not bring myself to kill the little fella.  Plus the homeowners had no kids or pets.

That's cool RealG! 

Some info on the dart frogs:

"The poison in their skin can cause swelling, nausea, and paralysis if touched or eaten without necessarily being fatal.

A few species, however, are considered to be among the deadliest animals on Earth. For example, the golden poison dart frog has especially toxic skin with enough poison to kill as many as 10 grown men."

Ok, here is the final list of ingredients! 

1) Red, but not via a decal. 

2) Frog

3) Sand

Time to get thinking about what we're gonna build! We have all of December to do so, but the ones who figure it out quickly and are eager to begin are welcome to start in December if they'd like. 

Feel free to throw ideas around here! Big Smile

My friend who has a couple of those frogs as pets told me they are not poisonous here in Hawaii.  Must be the different environment.  So laid back here.

Which is ironic, considering the average price of a single family home is around 1 million dollars.  And these are not the fancy homes in swank neighborhoods.  The frog I met was in Manoa, which IS an upscale neighborhood.  I should have asked the homeowners how much he pays for rent.

Aw, you should have caught it and kept it as a pet then! It would be a pretty and exotic specimen! 

Tourism hotbeds tend to be pricey; it's the same deal where I live...though it's certainly worse in Hawaii!

Though I like weird animals, I have no desire to keep them as pets.  Cats that inconsiderate dopehead people throw away/abandon are good enough for me.  I did watch a Youtube video where an iguana went nuts over a belly rub - its legs flailed in ecstacy like it was from the Muppet Show!

So getting back to the subject at hand - I'm only coming up with a Soviet (red) SSM (Frog) in the desert (sand)!  I'll come up with something more creative.

I had a cat for maybe 14 years who had been a stray. She was a great one; so I know what ya mean about the cats. Can't say I don't keep weird animals, though, what with the gecko and all...

My idea for what to build is a French tank --its crew pointing out a literal 1/35 frog to some kids (maybe I can do a red shirt or something). Found the perfect kit for this! 

Sand I can squeeze into the diorama via sandbags and/or terrain. Setting in the countryside by a pond maybe.

 ...And, yes, I found 1/35 frogs believe it or not! Propeller

I'm going to anguish over this one for awhile. Looked at a couple things today. Shipping is ridiculous though. My final conclusion is...wait for the show in Columbus OH in Feb. Lots of vendors so I'm bound to find one of the kits I'm looking for there.

That looks cool John!!! I love French camo, I wanna do another French tank soon.

Still thinking on mine. I do have a little Japanese car/trike thingie with bug-eyed headlamps that looks sorta frog-like. I'll see if I can find it, if it fits Real G's concept of 'frog' I can paint it red and stick it on a beach to fill out 'red' and 'sand'.

Thank you, Gamera! I haven't done a French camo scheme before, so... Indifferent Let's hope I can do it well! I have also been collecting diorama supplies-- Sculptamold, Static Grass, sandbags-- with more on the way. I saw this neat diorama video on YouTube, too: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=os1SA2ZpVdE

 

Frog is a tough ingredient! If Mongoose okays it, though, I'll count it. :)
