Monogram PBY-Catalina Scratch Building Details

Some modelers go way beyond just putting a model kit together. Way beyond what you or I would do. Details that are so striking, you would hate to paint over them.

Such as this kit, a Monogram PBY-5A Catalina from Monogram, and built by Jorge Roberto Wolf.

The attention to detail is amazing. What started out as flat plastic stock, once cut and assembled, becomes seats, desks, radio equipment, and much more. This is an aircraft kit that is almost to well done to be fully assembled and painted. While the pictures are clear, and worth an hour of your time, there is a lot of text where Jorge tells you some of his methods and tips.

I highly recommend you read it through, it can be very helpful if you ever thought of tackling a similar project.

Don't miss the links at the bottom of his page, those go to Page 2 and Page 3 of the build.
