1/72 Academy PBY 5A "Black Cat"
Who doesn't like seaplanes and amphibs? Academy makes a nice looking series of PBY's. I had seen the weathered "Black Cat" version, and just had to give it a try. This is one I really feel looks better in person, than the photos. (Too much flash ,I guess) I think with this type of weathering, less is more, but it's hard not to get carried away when you how badly worn the actual aircraft got.
