    The font and size used on the codes of SW-A are unusual. Not saying wrong, of course.....

        The font and stencil style are 100% accurate to 1945 253 Sqn images.

        The codes were actually a touch smaller in service.

        With all two seat Spitfire liveries it is a case of getting a visual balance of the misplaced roundel, the serial, the codes on both sides and the two cockpits.

                    I wonder if that is the first Walrus ever to appear at DX. I could imagine how that could be the case.

                              If ever there was a restoration project that I one day hoped to see completed and flying, and was on my lottery win list, it was the Walrus. Poor thing has been passed from pillar to post but never quite made it over the finishing line.
                              The cancelled reg is disappointing, but it’s still intriguing as to why it’s at Dx. Here’s hoping!

                                Its pointing towards ARCo, so lets hope it goes there. De-registering it is less optimistic though...

                                    So what's in Belfast's hangar currently, as I hope they wouldn't put the shagbat outside?

                                      Just popped up on Vintage Fabrics FB page:

                                      We are sad to announce that our long term resident, the Supermarine Walrus (G-RNLI) left Audley End yesterday to take up residence with a new owner.

                                      The previous owner decided late last year that he did not want to continue with this substantial project and it was put up for sale. The new owner wishes to continue the work that we and all the previous restoration establishments have carried out, but at a new location and with his own team.

                                      We wish him and the team all the best and we look forward one day to seeing the Walrus take to the skies.
                                      Listening out for something interesting approaching...

                                        Good to hear that it is still hoped to continue to flying status.

                                          A couple of poor images of the artwork on the tail of PT462. I know it does not do Roobarbs talents justice as I was distracted at the time by the Walrus arrival.
