Pretty much double the size, from current PBY to Flymodel PBY, Boats My Friend.
Though it will look good as a kind of "forced perspective" display, one hanging about 4 ft from the other would look as though they were flying in company but a couple miles apart.

I'm very much looking forward to seeing this magnificent PBY completed. The detail in the landing gear, and the beautifully done wing construction are both elements I much admire.

Kind and Respectful Regards Boats My Friend, Uyraell.

One more stick and tissue fan here. And PBY-5 - one of my all time 'flying boat' favourites too. Great job Boats and I'm following with interest.

not to long for an example like this PBY I added a lot of detail parts to it the kit never designed it for I was pretty much on my own. A kit lkike this would take me any where from 10 days to two weeks depending on the complexity of the kit. The old Sterling and Guillow stick and tissue kits I can build in one week. I really dont mind posting these balsa stick models if no one complains, as richkat quoted its all paper and wood its all the same I agree a 100 percent. if you have any stick models you like to build and post them here dont be bashfull so far no one has protested me on these balsa builds.
