Have you considered RAAF Walrus too? I guess you know why I'm asking...
Thanks K. Yes I know exactly why you're asking! Actually just investigating and I think an RAAF or RAN Walrus/Seagull V is very do-able.
Found these images. The caption for the first one states it's PROBABLY HMAS Australia. The second one is there purely cos' I like it. That elephant is probably getting the Walrus up to near flying speed!

New Model

Bruno has an Aichi D3A (#174) which is a later D3A-2. I wanted a Pearl Harbor D3A-1 so reworked and repainted his design into this one. It's a model of the 'Val' flown by A. Sakimoto of the 5th Koku Sentai off the carrier Zuikaku.
I've also prepared another Pearl Harbor Val: a red tailed Akagi version which I'll present on here when built.
The old question of which grey to use presented itself. I originally did it in a slightly darker putty grey which looked ok on the computer but just looked wrong when printed. So I ended up running with what you see here which to me is acceptable.

Nice job on your reworking the canopy, the wing roots look great too. You just need to put the actual pilot's face on your pilot. Really nice Garry.

Cheers Brent.
Re the canopy, I spent some time trying to modify the original, but no matter what I did it didn't work. I ended up starting from scratch and lucked out- nailed it on the first attempt. I wish all such mods went like that!
Case in point: at the moment I'm trying to do a Bf.109K-4 from one of Bruno's G's and the whole project seems to be a downward spiral from bad to worse and then worse again. I've drawn a line in the sand and if the next print is still a dud I'll find something else to do.

Classic airplane, icon of the Pacific War...
Extremely clean work on the model. Looks great.

Well done!
