PBY5-A Catalina scratch 1/28 scale

Ahoy
I havent been here for a while been far to busy on other projects and this is one of them. A fellow modelr whom i known for years on end has lent me a set of plans Edward builds balsa and plastic kits I was thinking of building another dumbo a year or so ago I done a build thread on a Flymodel kit of the PBY Catalina 1.33 scale. So I decided to build another Edward lent me a set of plans from Guillows a kit he recently built about 8 years ago I had nop idea Guillows made a PBY, I ordered a bulk load of balsawood from Balsa USA. A lot cheaper then what you will purchase at a hobbyshop. I would like to share this with weveryone when i finish this one I will get starte3d on some more build threads here so i took a break from card for a while although I used some cardstock on this beast the landing gears is all paper along with the wheel wells.

WOW!!
Absolutely stunning Boats My Friend!
That is one very beautiful PBY5 B.!

I've a bit of a soft spot for the PBY, having been in the fuselage of one awaiting restoration to static condition.
So far as I know, it's still waiting.

Kind and Respectful Regards Boats My Friend, Uyraell.
