Take a seat huxley75. Have we got a treat for you!
S&P is Scissors & Planes. It's the GIANT baby of one of the members of this forum- one Bruno Vanhecke. He has designed literally thousands of paper models; mostly aircraft and mostly 1/100 scale.
He's also done a squillion 1/300 designs (plus other's pepaints of same) which can be downloaded by members free from his 'One Model Per Working Day' thread which is easy to find because it's the longest running and most comment driven thread on here. Click back into 'Aviation' and you'll see it straight away.
His 1/100 designs are available to buy for the unbelievable price of 1 USD regardless of type. Yep, all 1 measly buck.
Anyway, there's more to tell, but for now go to his thread and spend a couple of hours soaking it up.

In link there is a most recent list of S&P line of models.I honestly don't think there is another designer that made more models ever.One of my friends has an expression-like in a good liquor store,there is something for everyone here.

Rata-your Catalina reminded me that I have S&P 1/100 RAF version waiting for its turn.It's right next to RAF B-17,both white like a snowflakes.

Garry, this time you really did an AMAZING job on that Catalina. Like always everything is clean and perfectly done but recolor... something incredible. It's not difficult repaint to do(at least to me) but looks stunning on model. Definitely your greatest recolor so far.
Congrats!

Additional Info on PBY-5 BuNo 2291

This post provides some additional information about the markings of Garry’s model of PBY-5, Bureau of Aeronautics Number (BuNo) 2291, and about the fate of the aircraft not included in my original write up (http://www.papermodelers.com/forum/aviation/41534-us-navy-usmc-between-wars-1-100-a-27.html#post662179).

In 1937, the Navy reorganized its aviation units, renumbered fleet squadrons, and revised the marking system for aircraft. On 1 July 1939, patrol aircraft were reorganized and patrol squadrons were renumbered so that within each patrol wing (PatWing), the first number of a squadron would reflect the wing number and the second number the patrol squadron (VP) within the wing. For example, the first squadron of PatWing One, was renumbered from VP-7 to VP-1; the second squadron became VP-12, and so on. VP-14 retained its number as the fourth squadron of PatWing One. The 1937 marking system was retained and applied as follows:

PatWing One aircraft were identified by a single vertical stripe on the rudder and a single span-wise stripe on the elevators; PatWing Two by double stripes; PatWing Three by a horizontal stripe on the rudder and a fore-and-aft stripe on each elevator; PatWing Four by double horizontal and fore-and-aft stripes; PatWing Five by solid colored rudder and elevators; PatWing Six by a checkered pattern on the rudder and elevators; and PatWing Seven by double vertical and span-wise stripes.

Individual squadrons within the patrol wings were identified by colors: first, Insignia Red; second, White; third, True Blue; fourth, Black; fifth, Willow Green; and sixth, Lemon Yellow.

Like fleet aviation units, pre-war patrol squadrons were organized into six three-plane sections that were identified within squadrons by colored engine cowls. The lead aircraft of each section (Aircraft 1, 4, 7, 10, 13, and 16) had the entire cowl in the section color; the second aircraft (2, 5, 8, 11, 14, and 17) had the top half of the cowl painted in the section color; and the third aircraft (3, 6, 9, 12, 15, and 18) had the bottom half of the cowl painted in the section color. The sequence of colors was the same as for the tail markings: first – Insignia Red; second – White; third – True Blue; fourth – Black; fifth – Willow Green; and sixth – Lemon Yellow.

With this in mind, we can identify Garry’s model by the markings: single vertical rudder stripe and single span-wise elevator stripes identify it as a PatWing One aircraft. That the stripes are black identifies it as an aircraft of VP-14 (fourth squadron of the wing). The number (11) and the black top halves of the engine cowls identify it as the second aircraft of the fourth section.

Some of these markings are visible in the color image from the VP-NAVY website, available at https://www.vpnavy.com/pby/vp14pby_29jun99.jpg

All these markings disappeared when the aircraft were repainted in 1941, and the logical system of squadron assignments disappeared as units were moved around to various wings that same year (for example, BuNo 2291 changed from being 14-P-11 in VP-14 to 22-P-7 in VP-22.

I also have some additional information about the loss of BuNo 2291 at Ambon on 15 January 1942.

The pilot of the aircraft at the time it was shot up was Lieutenant Jack Donohu, USN. The Japanese attackers were the 1st Chūtai (nine-aircraft unit) of the 3rd Kōkūtai (Naval Air Group), which had redeployed from Davao on Mindanao in the Philippines to Manado on the north coast of Celebes (now Sulawesi) on 11 January 1942. The attacking squadron was commanded by Lieutenant T. Kurosawa, who in October 1943 took command of the newly established 381st Kōkūtai. His image, below, is from Hata and Izawa p. 184.
