This has been on and off for a few years now, finally calling it finished and... BIG! Its the Revell 1/48 PBY-5 with a little help from Eduard, Belcher bits and True Details, with Aeromaster Decals, in the markings of FP225 of 240 Sqn RAF that I believe served as Special Duties Flight in the far east during WWII. I had bought this off ebay, only to find it was missing the instructions also finding good reference for British Cat's are few and far between, thankfully a few Britmodellers came to my aid and sent scans. and information, so thanks for that, in particular, to stringbag and JohnT I had but I did find a good piece of newsreel on youtube here with some great footage of a Cat crew in the far east. I noticed that the Browning’s had all be replaced by Lewis guns, so borrowed some from one a Blackdog set I have for a jeep. Not 100% sure about all the antenna's, I think I've seen all these as well as other configurations in various references, so went for what please my eye.... Build thread is here if your interested... Enjoy
