The Supermarine Walrus was a British single-engine amphibious biplane reconnaissance aircraft designed by R. J. Mitchell (who also designed the Spitfire) and first flown in 1933. During World War II, it was operated by the Fleet Air Arm and also served with the RAF, the RAAF, the RNZN and RNZAF. This book is the most comprehensive pictorial and technical history of the Supermarine Walrus ever published. The text provides a summary of the fascinating and peculiar career of the Walrus, air-sea rescue seaplane and maid of all work. A rarely documented aspect of World War II and pre-war aviation history. Mushroom Model Publications feature superb colour illustrations of camouflage and markings, walk-around colour photographs and rare b+w archive photographs. Essential reading for aviation enthusiasts & scale aero-modellers.
