If I counted correctly this is my 100th post in ARC,
something special for me. This is the Supermarine Walrus Mk.I Airfix in 1:48
scale. My first kit from Airfix and I can not say a bad thing. I had planned 3 weeks for the construction including the BiG Ed Set No. 49182 from Eduard
and after 9 days I was done.
The model shows the marks of No. 276 Squadron, Royal Air Force Harrowbeer, Devon, England 1944.
Unarmed as a rescue plane. A look into the history of No. 276 Squadron so these machines were also in the Mediterranean in use
Attention also with the etching parts of Eduard, machine position must be controlled, because it would be the frames D35 and D 32 in the fuselage in the way.
When installing the work areas for radio operator and navigator, you should also look a little closer, try dry, there is the instructions made unclear, even the position on the plastic is not very sure to find.
Otherwise, a real surprise and quite easy to build, a real fun and yet a thoughtful division of the construction stages
I hope the everyone
enjoys my model and the report.
