Academy PBY-5A Catalina 1/72 Guadalcanal


Recommended Posts

Hi fellow modellers, this is my last finished project.

It´s the nice PBY-5A Catalina from Academy in 1/72. i added some extras like Eduard PE and Starfighter decals to depict the first allied airplane to land in Guadalcanal in 1942. Althought I don´t think it carried any bombs, I choose to use some on my model.

Build is very straightforward. It was painted with Testors acrylics and oil washed. Smoke stains were made with pastel chalks.

I hope you like it and every comment and critics are welcomed!

Best regards from Uruguay!

Ignacio

That's a great looking Catalina, fantastic to see. The photi etch really adds to it. You beat me to posting. I've just finished an RNZAF one, and am building a diorama base for it at the moment- watch this space.

Thanks everyone !

I´m looking forward to see your cat!

I've always loved the shape of the Catalina with its' big high wing and those twin radials, it's just a cool looking plane and sounds so sweet when you hear a real one rumble past!!

I fully intend to build one in the next year sometime, just wish Airfix would release one in a new tooling instead of keep dishing up their old donkey over and over again?

A very nice build Ignacio - well done!! :thumbsup::coolio:

Kev :)
