  1. Looks good, Allan….different. Nice work.

  2. I’ve enjoyed all three of your Catalinas, John. Still have to get around to doing one.

  3. She is a mean looking machine in black.

  4. Nice. Makes me think I should build mine.

  5. Allan, I almost missed (getting old!) that this one is a -4, with the sliding hatches, not the “bubbles” from the -5 on.
    That is a different scheme, as well.
    Just a unique Catalina all around. Thanks for posting it Just a beaut!

  6. Definitely a beauty, Allan, do you have another for the group build?

  7. Great Catalina, excellent detail.

  8. Looks great. I did the 2, quite while back now.( bare metal )

  9. Good build.
    Catalina, even still 1 flying around in the Netherlands.
    Regards, Dirk/The Netherlands.

  10. I just went back and looked at all three of your Catalina builds. Very impressive I say.

    The real plane is really quite large, (as are the built up models).

    I remember building a Revell 1/72 “Black Cat” as a child. Now I have two of the 1/48 sized Monogram kits to build someday. Thanks for sharing my friend.

  11. 🙂 … Greetings … 🙂 :
    Nice model Allan, interesting scheme.
