    Excellent choice for a Cat build. Thanks for starting a new build thread Allan.

    I’ve docked the cats tail and glued its outer wing panels together plus a bit of filling and gluing of internal parts.

    This is a brilliant choice! Can’t wait to see it take shape!

  • David Mills said 1 year ago:

    Nice choice Allan – will sit very well alongside your Dornier 24!

  • Allan J Withers said 1 year ago:

    Thanks Paul. Thanks David, and my other three cats !

  • David Hansen said 1 year ago:

    Excellent choice of subject, for 2 reasons:
    1) You can debate with people till they’re blue in the face that its a Consolidated PBY (It’s Not).
    2) When you tell them it’s a PB2B-2 they’ll say something like, “Did you just say doobie doobie doo?”
    Sorry. Its just how my mind works….

    Thanks David, even though it’s built by Boeing’s subsidiary in Canada it’s still a Consolidated Catalina, scoobie doobie doo, which cartoon character said that ?

    David, you could tell them you’re quoting Shakespeare- 2 B or not 2 B. If you can’t beat ’em, confuse ’em.
    Allan, Frank Sinatra. Strangers in the night. Badabum!

    A bit of progress with my black cat ! I’ve raised the seats and corrected the control column, with a bit of interior paint and assembly, oh and filled some sink holes and re-drilled the rivets !

    I do like a Consolidated cat. Nice progress so far and it makes me want to see more.

    A bit more progress, wing in one piece, cockpit ready to go in, nose turret in MM 1734, instrument panel in, windows in with Future.

    Allan this is looking great – just enjoying watching all of your builds as they take shape – the painting is so clean!

    Lovely start to a great model of an outstanding plane!

    Love the humour that has come out, too.
    Doobie doobie doo 2B or not 2B badaboom!
