Hi Kirk

One of my favourite exhibits RAF Cosford Museum is their Danish Catalina so I am very much looking forward to seeing your Norwegian example :)

Thanks Cliff, I would love to do a Danish one as well. I've seen the Cosford example and have it filled in my virtual ' to be built soonish file'!

I'm going to look forward for this one :popcorn: Just happens to fancy Cats in every version or user.

http://www.seawings.co.uk/If you'll need a good source of good photo's a little difficult to navigate in there, but their walk around section is a gold vault including a collection of 147 photo's of the interior on the PBY-6A located in the Danish air museum in Stauning Denmark. http://www.flymuseum.dk/ like this one http://www.seawings.co.uk/images/RDAF%20Catalina%20L-861%20-%20Interior%20WR%20ex%20Erik%20Thingbo/17.jpg

So here are the bits and bobs I will be using, along with an extra Eduard etch set or two, that are still on the way to me.

Cheers

Kirk

Hi Henrik, ah yes, I remember coming across this masterpiece a while back. Quite inspirational, bonkers and way beyond my skill, but very inspirational.

Thanks

Kirk

Could be a solution Col. But I do prefer my favorite scale 1/72 and need to build at least 3 more, just to cover my RDAF collection 2 PBY-5A and a PBY-6A. Also got one of the Revell 1/48 Cats for Christmas which I plan to go crazy on and do a Cut away RDAF PBY-5A. Still debating which color scheme its going to wear. a overall Gloss Sea Blue or a gray/red with dayglo? But that's somewhere in the future.

Superb, many thanks Nils, just what I needed. I'm just finishing off a 1/32 Tornado at the moment, but shall be diving straight into this build very soon.

Time is racing on so I've made a start at last! This may not be quite as detailed as I originally intended, but I am conscious of the finish date fast approaching. So far I've done some basic painting and interior work along with some Eduard detailing. Another session or two should see this ready to close up and have it's tail chopped off ready for the Belcher Bits correction.
