Supermarine Walrus.

And it's only got one engine.
Now thats the the stuff! There's actually a full scale Walrus at the Fleet Air Arm Museum which is only an hours drive from here.

Ironically, I have visited that one at Yeovilton and not the one at Pt Cook RAAF Museum less than an hours drive from here!

Nice alternative colour scheme though - and it is historically accurate.

Now that is one your not going to loose in a hurry!

Last time I went to to the Fleet Air Arm Museum I took my father. He served on HMS Belfast in the later stages of WWII in the Far East. He told me that the ship had a hangar & catapult designed to accomodate 2 Walrus aircraft but by that stage in the war they had turned it into a cinema.

Actually they did!

It was painted for the first Antarctic expedition after World War II. It was immediately wrecked in a gale at Heard Island in December 1947 and lay buried in snow for forty years until recovered and brought to Point Cook for restoration to display condition.

OK, I'm going to have to ask permission to run this competition as the site rules dont allow a prize of any value to be offered if I'm not a site sponsor. Hang fire, I'll get it sorted!

Oh, UHU Por glue arrived today and its on the microaces website at £2.49 + vat. If anyone wants any let me know how many tubes you want and I'll work out postage to see if its worth it for you.

half a litre of UHU - that would be fun in a squeezy tube. Thanks for spotting that one!

The weight accumulator should be pretty easy as every item has a weight assigned to it in the database and it already gets calculated behind the scenes.

After the Mk1 spit You have to follow up with its stablemate, the Hawker Hurricane!
The Hurricane was my second favourite aeroplane from when I first discovered it as a small boy. (The first being the Lancaster)
And I wouldn't mind if it was the LE-D of Squadronleader Douglas Bader of 242 Sqn. That's a true "Kick-Ass" colour scheme!
Why are everybody ignoring the splendid Hurricane? It certainly did it's share of work in the Battle of Britain, and then some...

Or maybe "Kick-Arse" would be more correct in this case...?

Oh - I would love too.

The hurricane would be absurdly fantastic (I too appreciate the relevance of this magnificent machine) and I have already looked at the design and it is most definately on the list.

But if you want to bump it to the top of the pile and decide exactly what livery you want it designed in, enter it into the competition thread when I put it up!

We'll have to wait a few days tho for the thread as I am required to become a 'site sponsor' before we can do any of that. It's not a big deal as I was intending to do some advertising on RCGroups anywho!

Shouldnt be more than a few days.

OH! Looks like I already am. Get ready guys!

Think of the possibilities. You could start trolling yourself.

You know that Microaces started popping up as one of the two banner adverts at the top of the RCGroups web page?

Nice work!
