Martin PBM 3R Mariner, A70-11, 40 Sqn RAAF Townsville Qld 1943.

1/72 Mach2, I modified the turrets to convert to a transport, sanded and polished the canopy and painted on the frames, strengthened the fuselage join between the wings with a strip of cloth and added the mooring rails to the nose, finished in MM enamels with MM clear acrylics over Aussie decals from the spares box.

  1. Very nice, Allan!

  2. Came out well, Allan…nice build, sir.

  3. Leave it to you to Aussie-fy a Mariner!! Looks great. What did you use for those mooring rails – had to be very small/thin!

  4. Good job Allan.

  5. An outstanding job sir. love the scheme.

  6. Allan, great job on a tough kit. Without the turrets, the lines look better. How many of these did the RAAF have?

  7. It’s a weird looking plane, but you’ve managed (as usual) to make a good job of the model.

  8. Allan, thanks.
