The first of the two prototypes designed to succeed the popular Walrus flew on July 14, 1948. PA143 had 3 fins and contra-rotating 3-bladed props. It did not enter service. John Thompson has designed this impressive model that will be talked about when seen on the water and is even more impressive in the air.
