  1. Very nice. Well done!

  2. Already with the positive waves Giannis, as you have presented a beautiful model. We tend to forget about the utility aircraft that also flew with distinction in WWII and never hear, read or see them. And here is one of them, the Walrus, by Airfix, and you sir have an excellent build of this kit, and now have added another one I will have to add to the list of Airfix kit to get this year. It will look perfect parked next to the Swordfish and a line of Spits and Hurricanes we tend to concentrate on. Hopefully modelers will start to the enjoy these types of aircraft, I was guilty of just doing the mainstream plane myself, and now with amazing new mold available models in my favorite scale 1/48 I can add the Walrus to the list, as really I didn’t know it was out there. Shame on me. Thanks for sharing, beautiful work. Bravo!

  3. Beautiful work Giannis! Really nice result.

    Thanks for the inspiration to pull mine out and finish it.

  4. The level of finesse showed here really sets this model apart from most. True that we don’t see Airfix Walrus build often, but all I recall seeing were very impressive models, just like yours Giannis. This fact leads me to conclude that building this kit really is a labour of enthusiastic love for the type,
    Bravo, fantastic work overall and the extra parts, like ropes & wires, really enhanced the final result.

  5. Very nice build!

  6. Your rigging work is top notch! Really good looking model.

  7. Awesome build. The detail work really sets it off. I can see my kit getting closer to the top of the pile after seeing the result of your effort.

  8. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Beautiful work on that Walrus model Giannis. You have done a very good work on the rigging.
    It is always a welcomed sight to see a utility aircraft, a not too often seen subject.

  9. Great work on this Airfix kit.

  10. A great round of after-detailing you’ve had with this Walrus! Congratulations!

  11. Wow – that is a real beauty! I saved the images to use for my 1/72 build. Love it.

  12. I looked at your 1/72nd Walrus before looking at your 1/48th build. Another excellent build. Well done.

  13. Fantastic. Everything is spot on.

  14. Thank you very much for your kind words. I’m glad you like my model.
