PBY4 Catalina Flying Boat 1/72 scale

by Dusan Lekic

Produced by Consolidated Aircraft PBY "Catalina" was one of the most widely used multi-role aircraft of WWII. "Catalina" were deployed in practically all of the operational theatres of World War II, PBYs were used in patrol bombing, anti submarine, escort and search and rescue missions.

This version PBY-4 was the last of the early versions powered by two Pratt & Whitney R-1830-72 (1050hp) Twin Wasp engines, with new propeller spinners, blisters over waist guns (later units).
Only 33 where built by order (including one initial as a XBPY-4 which later became the XBPY-5A).

This is my model of PBY4 Catalina Flying Boat in 1/72 scale by Academy.

This model is 99% out of the box, and painted with (US WWII standard) gunze colors, to represent Catalina in the Philippines.
