In my castle....
Does anyone know where I can find the drawings to the boards that you stand on while repairing the engines on the Catalinas? And other repair structures that might have been used too of course.
I guess that you have to scratch build those, I can't find them as kits anywhere.....

Two things of interest in the photo, one the ladder to board the aircraft and the second the russian star on the side.

Great pic of the RNZAF Cat, Micdrow! One of our Boeing PB2B-1's by the look of the nose turret, and ASR aerials under the wings. Any idea of XX-C's serial?
 
Thanks Wildcat!

I didn't know there was such a site! What's the full site address?

Also. if XX-C was a Pby-5, were they retro-fitted with the later nose turrets? The lack of radome behind the canopy was my one reason for doubting it being a PB2B-1.
