Revell's 1/72 scale
Supermarine Walrus

by Rafael Neto


Supermarine Walrus

Revell's 1/72 scale Walrus is available online from Squadron.com for less than USD$8.00




This is an attractive and inexpensive 1/72 scale Walrus model kit by Revell. Actually, is an old Matchbox mould reboxed. Despite this, the surface is “rivet-free”, and the injection parts have no imperfections.


This is really only fit for a fun project, as it demands a lot more work for a completely accurate model.

I made some improvements, mostly in the engine, which is very exposed at the top of plane.


The choice of the 5-color scheme painted in this version (HMS Victorious, British Pacific Fleet, Japan, 1945 ) looks like hard work, but was easy to make,after the elaborated pre-shading that I tried.

The weathering, a bit more emphasized, as is my preference.

Remarks will be appreciated to plastimodelista@terra.com.br
