1/72 Academy, my first Catalina, not counting the the Airfix kit built many years ago, I modified a few things and added some antennae, finished in Humbrol and MM enamels with Future and MM FS30000 acrylic over ES decals.
This is another addition to the “Water Wings” Group that I did a while back. Bear with me I will have to enter each photo individually to post them. Hope it works.

This is a version of Monogram's 1:48 scale PBY- 5A. Most builders construct this kit in typical WWII fashion but I wanted my plane to present a different appearence. The USCG started flying Catalinas in the 1930's, (the flying boat version) and [...]
