It's a neat project for sure! Could make for a neat runabout/pleasure craft.
I was told when I bought the Walrus that the aircraft has been designed by adapting the plans of a 1930 Comper Swift self-build aeroplane as it’s base, these plans had been skilfully re-engineered into the Walrus.
A few folk online have queried how much Swift is in this!
With the lockdown in place I have been left with little choice but to spend my time reading old aviation magazines, and I came across this snippet in the July 1983 issue of Aeroplane Monthly: One of the most weird and wonderful projects to come to our attention is that undertaken by Arthur Carrington and Chris Duthy-James, owners of Leopard Moth G-ATFU. They have com- pleted the wings and are "well advanced on the fuselage" of a half-scale Supermarine Walrus amphibian, to be powered by a Salmson radial engine of about 90 h.p. It certainly takes the prize for originality, and we look for- ward to seeing a long-absent (al- beith half-scale) shape in English skies in the years ahead.
To this very day, the kid who used to bully me at school still takes my lunch money. On the plus side, he makes great Subway sandwiches.
