That does look awesome. How much work i wonder to make up the Seagull version the Japanese operated? Hmm, just did some searching and looks possible but beyond my feeble skills. Maybe one for the retirement.

Hi Carl Although the Walrus was originally called the Seagull V, it was a completely different aircraft to the earlier Supermarine Seagull. If you want to build that, Silver Wings produce a beautiful resin kit reviewed here. All the best Rowan
