Finally finished this project. I said it before: it was TC-member Trexx75 who inspired me with his 'Frog reloaded' to build a Frog. His mod's and paintscheme of the Frog rerelease are awesome! He kindly provided me with each and every detail to make a Frog just like his. Again, thank you very much Michael.
Eventually I was able to be a little creative/original myself. I happened to have a nice set of customized Madcap wheels. And after a long process where I have gone through all the Frogs present in the Showrooms here on TC for inspiration, I figured out a nice paintscheme that would match the dampers and chassis and would still look like a Tamiya release and would have a retro look as well a more modern look than the original Frog.
The dampers are from Yeah racing. It has a Technigold and teu-101bk esc.

@Vintagenewbie: I used normal tamiya 18mm wide maskingtape then painted the blue portion with a brush and PC-4 paint. When painting polycarbonate I use the jars of pc-paint and a brush rather than spraycans, wher you have to mask everything but the area you want to spray.
The line still looks a little wobbly if you ask me, but that is also because of the bumps in the Frog-body.

well good job .. I just messed up a frog body with a spray can wondering if i should strip it or just get another one. Might be cheaper to just get a new body.. thx for you tips
