1/48 Supermarine Walrus.
This is the new Airfix kit built pretty much out of the box with the exception of Classic Airframes decals and Eduard seat belts added. I also had to drill a hole and fabricate an antenna post on the top of the rudder. Odd that this was missing from the kit. This is the nicest kit that I’ve ever had the pleasure of building. My previous favorites included the Eduard Spitfire, WNW Pfalz D.III, and the AM F3F-1. It’s engineered every bit as good as a WNW kit. I painted it with Humbrol enamels and rigged it with stainless steel wire. The wooden radio operator’s and navigator’s tables were done with oil paint over acrylic tan. I simulated some light salt stains with crushed pastel chalk. It represents a Walrus aboard HMS Victorious after the Okinawa campaign.
