Fantastic model. I have one to build too and I'm sure it would take me all of a year to complete - I can only dream that it would looks good as yours!

That's an absolute beauty.  A superb paint finish and I really like the semi-converted roundel detail.  Great rigging work too.  I learnt something new as well as Midhurst is a part of the World I know well but I had absolutely no idea there was ever a RNAS there.  The nearest one I knew of was Ford.  One can but hope that Airfix will see the light and downscale this kit to 1/72!

You`ve done a superb job Nick,...... a very worthy subject too,..... well researched and expertly accomplished,....... I take my hat off to you!

 

I finished painting and decalling my own Walrus a year or so ago but cannot bring myself to rig it yet,.... I did it in a silver scheme from the original boxing and Airfix have since re released another boxing with decals for the subject that I`m doing!!

 

Cheers

Beautiful Shagbat (I know, a bit of an oxymoron)!

What a lovely build and a great story to boot. 

I was lucky enough to meet John Moffat several times - he was a friend of a friend. A larger than life character even late in life!
