  1. Fabulous builds as always with great photography.

  2. Interesting series. You've got to be really focused to get through a project like this. Well done to your father.

  3. I am not sure what the collective noun is for a group of Walrus`s but they look great.
    Your father has a great deal of talent.

  4. Very ambitious project, and nice results. I would love to see one or two more close-up photos of each individual aircraft! (getting old - eyes aren't quite what they used to be...)

  5. Very nice collection. One in 1/48 was enough for me, so I really admire his patience.:)

  6. Santiago,
    Kiuddo's once again to your father on these wonderful builds. Where in the world do you store or display all of these models?

  7. Super photo's! I built the Revell one and it looked nice but x 16 is way better!

  8. Could you provide a photo of 9) Supermarine Walrus L2217 I 40 from 712 HMS Glasgow – early 1940? It would be much appreciated. I have been searching for the markings and paint job of a Walrus from the Glasgow.
