1/48 Catalina IVB RoNAF (Lesser Built G. B. straggler!)


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, at last I've finished my 1/48 Catalina, it was supposed to be completed for the Lesser Built Air-Forces Group Build, but didn't quite make it!! Original thread http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234973320-norwegian-148-pby5-catalina/ .

After a little research in to Norwegian Catalina use, (helped hugely by Nils ( Vingtor ), I was surprised to find a RoNAF Catalina which used my initials as it's squadron code, so, being a vain type ;-), that's the one I've finished it as.

Sorry about the quality of some of the pics, it is a real struggle to take anything half decent without distortion, but that's due to the limitations of the Kindle I use to take photo's with and the size of the completed model.

Oh, and by the way, unless you fit some internal lighting, don't bother with adding any internal detail to the kit supplied parts!

1/48 - that wingspan must be huge!! I've just had some similar issues trying to take good photos of a Revell Transall C-160, still trying to get some half decent ones...

Nice job though, looks very nice.

Thanks everyone for your kind comments. I should also add that I have cut out and repositioned the ailerons and that the rear beaching gear looks nicely in scale, but is frustratingly flimsy. I'll see if I can take some higher quality pics over the next few days as well.

Cheers

Kirk.
