Britains Walrus 1962 and 1975

Britains Walrus

 

The walrus was introduced to the new plastic Zoo range as number 1328. The first issue was released in 1962 and replaced in 1975. It was derived from the old Britains lead version’s mould which came out in 1933. This model is shown on the left.

 

The model shown on the right is the replacement model designed by Ron Cameron and introduced to the Zoo range in 1975 and lasted until 1998 when the Zoo/wildlife range was deleted from Britains itinerary.
