Twin Engined GB - PBY-5A Catalina ++FINISHED++

Post by Deacon »

Right, the wife chose this one for me to do.

I bought the Airfix kit a while back and then later, after reading an article, I bought the Academy kit. The intention is to
use the example given by Airfix to make the Academy kit as a Coastal Command aircraft.

Cheers

Alan

As usual Alan you have affine start on this kit... Sadly I just couldn't get in on this group build. I'll be trying to get in on the one after we get home from RIAT next month. Looking forward to seeing more of this build though.
