Details

1/104 Scale. This kit comes from the classic Monogram tooling. This was of the first Aircraft kits they produced along with the B-26 and the B-25 which we also own the tooling for. The kit features engraved markings and lots of rivets but is a classic. It has a wingspan of 12 inches and measures 8.25 inches long. Decals are included for 2 versions and it comes with a nice sprue of clear parts, 6 in total. New artwork based on a PBY rescuing the men from the ill fated USS Indianapolis. The oval PBY logo is on the decal sheet if you wish to mount your PBY on our clear globe swivel stand sold separately.

One of the most recognisable aircraft employed by the U.S. Navy during World War II, the Consolidated PBY-5A “Catalina” patrol bomber proved to be strategically indispensable for the elimination of U-boats from high above the tumultuous Atlantic Ocean. After four design iterations since its first flight in 1935, a fifth incarnation incorporated amphibious capabilities. Today, the Catalina is often cited for its part in the rescue of survivors from the torpedoed U.S.S. Indianapolis in 1945, risking 12-foot swells to save crew members helplessly adrift in shark-infested waters.
