Evening, Been a while since I last posted on BM however been busy fettling away building this monster, which was a Christams present from my daughter. Revell's 1:48 scale PBY-5 Catalina. the only extras that I have used were replacement propeller blades and gave " problur" a go and very happy with the results. I also used canopy masks on all the glazed sections. Paint scheme isn't 100 % accurate for the aircraft represented however I liked the all white scheme but after spraying it, it looked just too white, so I changed it a bit and chose camouflage for the upper wings and tail. Only issues with the model kit, were the decals, they fell to bits when applying even using micro sol/set etc and they also silvered very easily. Hence the heavily weathered look. Always loved this aircraft and now I have one in my collection... Finding a place to display it might be a problem.. it is HUGE !! Anyway, hope you like it !! Cheers
