PBY-Catalina Scratch Building Details
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.
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.
