This month the ARCS Pretty Plane Award goes to Mr. Suzuki’s excellent Supermarine Walrus. The Walrus was an early 1930’s amphibious biplane designed by Supermarine, the same folks that produced the famous Spitfire of WWII. Mr. Suzuki scratch built this model over five years from plans from a British model magazine. He powers the model with an electric motor and a six-cell Lipo Pack. Mr. Suzuki has flown the model, and it flies very well.
For his outstanding craftsmanship, Mr. Suziki wins the much-coveted Anchorage House of Hobbies Pretty Plane award (a $50 gift card)!
