SWorkbench - Modelling accolade for Airfix Walrus


375 posts

The latest edition of Workbench celebrates a stunning European success for our fantastic 1/48th scale Supermarine Walrus Mk.I kit and we chart the development of fighter aircraft by featuring a pair of recently released kits which commemorate two of the most significant examples.


We also spend some quality time with the members of the Airfix Modelling Special Interest Group and find out a little of their history and what keeps them motivated to display at many of the model shows up and down the country.

Hi Airfix,

and what about new tool Walrus in 1/72. If you introduced Sworfish 1/72 why not Walrus, especially when you have 1/48 scale pattern? By the way Swordish and Walrus in 1/72 were my very first Airfixes, which I built nearly 53 years ago. They were bagged Type I artwork items and they were bought by my father, pilot of Czechoslovak airlines, who found them in one Moroccan oper air market. I still have these pieces in my archives. Later on I added other Swordfish from FROG and Walrus introduced in early 80´s by Matchbox. But Airfix is Airfix, and Airfix is my favorite kit producer.
