PB4Y-2 Privateer "Redwing" (Matchbox, 1980)
I have been meaning to post photos of this model for a long time, and finally got the motivation given the fact it won a first prize in the recent Australian Model Expo. The category was "1/72 - out of the box - non-Commonwealth" (of course, we have a separate category for Commonwealth planes!).
This was not an easy build; more, like a comedy of errors. This plane almost flew into the trash can more times than I can count. Thus particularly happy to have persevered to the point where it got a prize.
I was lucky to get this kit for a bargain, but now I hear that they are harder to find than hen's teeth, and may sell for a small fortune. If you have one in your stash, check my web page (https://www.marcellorosa.com/1-72-pby4-2-privateer) for the detailed build report. I hope this will save you a lot of headaches.
