Supermarine Walrus Mk.I No. 700 Naval Air Squadron, 1941

Shagbat MK I. 1:72 – Matchbox – Part 3. – making a diorama

The plan - building a Walrus in 1:72 - based on a photo I found in an article and I fell in love with the theme, an elephant tows a Walrus somewhere in Burma (well this is my third plane towing diorama so may something wrong with me 🙂 [...]

Shagbat MK I. 1:72 – Matchbox – Part 2.

Let's continue the Walrus story. Here are some pcs pictures from the painting and further assembly stages. The Shagbat is a relatively difficult airplane to build. Every parts have it's own direction - the dihedral is different on the [...]
