      {ppcode}In the ‘50’s growing up my friends father (who flew P-38 (F-5?) and B-25 recon) had a blister similar to this. He said it was from a Catalina but I remember it being more solid, half egg shaped, with a framed half like the one you show. After all these years I don’t know if it was from a Catalina after all, as I’ve never seen one of their blisters with a solid interior.
      Would you know what aircraft it may have come from?

      It was probably a PBY Catalina
