Thank you, Gamera! I've also heard that Sharpies actually have a purplish tint instead of pure black...not that I was gonna care about that really. Mostly I'm just worried about fitting the Sharpie tip into narrow crevices on the tank.

Okay here's my frog trike. I kept meaning to get these shot and posted and kept forgetting about it. A little more clean-up and I'll try to get the final clear coat on. 

I found these cool frog nail decals on Ebay. They had to ship from Australia but got here last weekend. Now I just need to get a good solid coat of gloss white on the surf boards and then add the decals.

Oh too cool! The front of that thing looks just like a frog sticking it's head out of the water Big Smile stickers look like a great find and the surfboard will be perfect

Thanks! I forgot who gave me the idea of the nail decals but there's zillions of different ones out there. Look on Ebay- it's some cool stuff.

Coming together, Gamera! I love the frog-decal surfboards idea! That's great!

Thank you, Gamera and Mongoose! So glad it turned out...Phew, that scheme took some time. I have some touch-ups and corrections to do; but the bulk of it is done! Yay!

I've got some grass on and have continued wrestling with the cattails....I need SO MANY! Lol

Gee whiz- has it been four months!?!?!?! 

Nice work there John, sorry I missed your post- have you gotten anymore done? 

I think I'm done here with the Mazda K360 'Frogmobile'. I ended up fumbling around with the rearview mirror for over a month and then went on vacation/holiday and forgot about her. Well, here she is- I decided to go ahead and finish her up- the rearview mirror still isn't right so I just left it off, not that it's all that noticable. 

Thanks John for running a fantastic GB and looking forward to the 'No Place Like Home' GB coming up!!!!

Thanks G! I forgot who suggested that I use fingernail decals but they worked out great.

Gamera I'm telling you the frhs on the surfboard really make it! It's all such a natural look, you'd never know it was 3 random items. Superb!

Thanks Mongoose! It doesn't really compare with your insane SR-71 diorama but I'm happy with it!

Gamera, sorry I missed your post! Great work, and yes, the frogs on the surfboards are a nice touch! Which pic do you want for the front? 

Thanks for participating and I'll see you in the No Place Like Home GB. As to my project here, I'm still working....aargh. But I'll keep plugging away. I've got more cattails to make and the tree I'm constructing needs more wire branches. I'm now officially on vacation, though, so maybe I'll finally advance. :)

Thanks John, just figured you were busy with Christmas stuff. 

I'd probably go with the third from the bottom or the fourth one down, one with a three-quarter view. 

It was a pleasure, hope No Place is just as fun! 

Good luck with the cattails! Looking forward to seeing you done!
