1/48 D-Day Walrus

Recommended Posts

Hi all

This is the Classic Airframes 1/48 Walrus, originally started for the D-Day Group build, build thread is here. As you can see I didn’t complete it nearly on time, but its done now.

She’s finished in 277 Naval Air Squadron, my first attempt at the FAA shadow scheme and with the D-Day stripes roughly hand painted for that time.

The kit is OK, I did have a real drama aligning the lower/upper wings correctly. The lower wings have no locating pins or any sort of guides, so getting these right is critical, I had two or three attempts before I got them right!

Fantastic build! The handpainted D-Day stripes really add to the realism, thanks for showing

That's a really nice Walrus Oz :) Lots of neat little touches like the "hand painted" ends of the invasion stripes and the shadows between the ribs on the wings :thumbsup:

Fantastic work Oz, the general wear and tear of the paintwork is spot on :thumbsup:

Well done Oz,

What a fantastic model and I can sympathise with the wing alignment too, which makes your efforts doubly good! Love the paint scheme and the D-Day stripes but must say that 277 Sqn was an RAF Air Sea Rescue Sqn and not a Naval Air Sqn!!

All the best

Beautiful Walrus! I really love the finish & the hand painted invasion stripes. I have so much admiration for anyone who can attempt all that rigging too!

Excellent. As the others say, the paint job, particularly the weathering and staining, is very well executed.

That's brilliant - the first time I've seen one of these made up and you've done it very well - I love the worn and very authentic finish. :thumbsup::worthy:

First rate job!

Talking of rigging hell, what technique did you use?

Fantastic OZ, you have done a great job on the stripes, its not easy to carry off hand painted markings and not make them sloppy. You have done superb job. Always look forward to seeing your latest project

Regards

Every now and then, someone posts up a finished build here that makes my jaw quite literally drop; well this is obviously one of them. It just looks absolutely spot on. Fantastic, absolutely fantastic.
