Thanks guys,

Paul, that walk around should help!

Dave, I think it just needs a new coat of paint! I think I've heard of that wreck and may have seen some pictures of it in the past. looks like the nose section is off.

Here's the official start up pic

and I should mention that the True Details resin set and metal gear were graciously donated by Stoney! I've had them for a few years now, going to put them to use!

That's cool, the window on the dorsal thing, was that standard or did they vary between models?
I told you photobucket sucks...

I'm pretty sure it was standard, that was where the engineer sat, in a little seat up on the dorsal spine

there's a bit wrtiten up on this forum. apparently, they opened by sliding upwards.

When I joined MA, it was your Catalina build that I saw first and (I think) was the first build thread that I commented on... I love how this has come around almost full circle. :drinks

Lucky enough to have a 1:1 scale PBY to watch droning around the skies here in sunny New Plymouth.
