My Telford sin... Supermarine Walrus

Recommended Posts

Hello Dears,

I'm back !!

WP_20171125_01_43_02_Pro

Start playing with the Steam pigeon's internals :evil_laugh::evil_laugh:

The more I go the more I will make a RAAF one ! Will study a lot !

A BPF one is equally tempting :hmmm::hmmm:

Thank for watching and have a very good modelling time !

Sincerely.

I'm enjoying watching people's Walrus builds, they are giving me plenty of inspiration for my own kit.

What-ho Cc!

Nice to see this one greening-up already.

What a kit! Almost enough to give scratch building a bad name with all that detail included.:lol:

Soo dear Martian !

You succumb to the mermaid song of the Walruses too ???

Another Eggman ??

I Wonder about the paint scheme of your Shagbat ??

Dutch navy SH 34 and Tracker.... Indian Navy Kamov ....

Mmmmmhhh A Nepalese or Swiss Navy Walrus could fill the bill :coolio::coolio:

Can't wait for your decision.... That will be great !

 Absolutely Dear Baron !

As I was looking into the Yeovilton's Walrus....

Airfix and Eduard together did'nt let too many place for scratch building....

There will be a lot of Walrus on the table in the next months...

Seemingly, there will be a Aussie decal sheet soon, so I'll wait a bit to make my decision !

Have a nice modelling time and a good pint of Guiness, or Murphies on my behalf !

Sincerely.

Hello dears,

Yesterday, I've done some wood grain on the Navigator table !!

Only to find today that I did it on the underside of the table !

Soooo, I did again today ! :rage:

WP_20171125_23_52_09_Pro

So you both know now that even the underside of the table has been recreated !!

In german they just say Dummkopf !!

Enjoy your modelling Sunday !

Sincerely.

Well, it was wood underneath too wasn't it? A true representation!

Of course, but should you have seen my face when I tried to glue it in place !! :rage:

 Well Almost since it is not really a wood plank !

To reproduce the same grain would not have been realisic Would'nt it ?

This laminated stuff is almost the same but not a perfect match, Am I right ?

:rofl2::rofl2::rofl2:

Or how to turn a mistake in some artistic digression !! :rofl2:

Sorry can't resist ...

Thank for the kind words !

Sincerely.

You are an evil child Crisp! Although I suspect that is not the first time you have been told so?

Hello dears,

I Started to erase these :wtf: ejection pins on the fuselage sides  

WP_20171127_21_30_18_Pro

Then go on for the etched parts !!

Still a pleasure to do !

Sincerely.

There're Walruses everywhere it seems!

Almost as common as badly placed ejector pin marks on Airfix models :smirk:

 

The navigators table must be some kind of plywood, right?

Then you don't have to worry about matching grain...

Thank @Christer A

Whatever, I'll try to reproduce Crisp deed !

A great Walrus in the making...... 

Soo We're egg man... Should you have seen the pace of disappearance of the Walrus in Telford.

A kind of "did every modeller has her walrus ??? affair "

Sincerely.

I see nothing funny in it.  There are standards to be observed.  It would be a truly horrendous flaw to have grain running in different directions between the upper and lower surfaces of said item.  I would also hope he put in sufficient grains to depict a truly mature tree!

 

Furthermore, I'd like to hear how corsaircorp determined the correct shades for the wood, both the light and dark elements of the grain?  Are we talking oak, beech, sycamore or some other variety?  Mahogany would definitely be wrong...far too heavy for an airborne installation.  But I'm keen to know whether he matched the correct FS shades for his grain and how he determined the type of wood employed on the specific airframe he's modelling, preferably down to the copse from which it was felled!

 

Rivet counting?  That's for wimps.  Grain stratification...that's where the future of modelling is heading!!!!

 

Yeah...alright.  :coat: time AGAIN!

Some of you chaps have a very strange idea of sin. As far as I can see you have been very good boys indeed. Carry on everybody, you've all done very well!

I fully understand Martin. Having just spent a weekend down in Cape Town with a good freind who took me to the three of the best LMS's. The model railway shop first, with little to interest me, I was looking for track. The the radio flyers shop with some plastic and I was looking for something flyable for my ladies greart nephew. Then finally Clowns, where I magaged it dispode of almost R500 about 27 UK Pounds (not a lot some would say) on an Italeri 24th scale jeep and a Master Box Ltd. Pin-up-Series Kit No, 6 Samantha to adorne the Jeep.

Not my usual fair but hey it was the subject matter...

You buys what you like, if you have to justify it, we so be it...

Or quoting Louis the XIVth (he did'nt have a griffon !! what a lack of taste"

"Parce que tel est mon bon plaisir"

Can be translated as "Because this is my pleasure"

I think that my modelling evening has been an Airfoied one....

WP_20171128_22_43_03_Pro

I've thoroughly searched and I think that the laminated stuff for the table is tree's wood ! undoubltly ! :coolio::coolio:

Hello dears,

Little by little, bits by bits !

This :wtf::wtf: Photoetched is very fragile and so easy to bend !!

WP_20171129_22_12_22_Pro

I mean to bend exactly where it must be straight of course !

But it seem to look good to me !

WP_20171129_22_22_05_Pro

It is really a joy of a kit, think that I will bring some wirind. I suppose that the camera were electrically actuated !

Have a nice modelling time and take care !

Sincerely.

No more news yesterday, just a special photo my Dear ETI @Martian Hale

I prepared a Gulash !!

WP_20171130_17_21_20_Pro

And will eat it today with this thing !

WP_20171130_17_40_42_Pro

Not a great fan of Young wine, but it's a good year, it's tasty !!

More to come soon... About the Walrus of course.... 'cause nobody has no interest on the future of the Gulash...

Have a good modelling time

and take care !!

Sincerely.
