    ahoy here is another one of collections in plastic. I got this one for my 67th birthday 4 years ago I was surprised I never seen this kit before. Last Monogram kit of the PBY I built was in 1955 it sold for $.98 a lot smaller scale a little smaller then 1/72, Cool Cat it said on the fuselage an oldie. When I first recieve this kit I was excited as a child waiteing for santa clauss to come down the Chimney. This kit was based on the real machine located here in Ohio my state at the Wright Patterson Airforce Base Museum. The SNAFU CATCHERS. Monogram captured the old dumbo and all her glory in this kit a pleasure to build it took me 7 months to build I took it to the airforce base museum to compare to the real machine its all there.

    Boats,

    Love seeing these old planes. During my days in the Navy I flew in P3 Orions, the grandchild of PBY's you could say.

    Excellent work.

    Jon
