One of the most recognizable aircraft employed by the U.S. Navy during World War II, the Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina patrol bomber proved to be strategically indispensable for the elimination of U-boats from high above the tumultuous Atlantic Ocean.

 

After four design iterations since its first flight in 1935, a fifth incarnation incorporated amphibious capabilities. Today, the Catalina is often cited for its part in the rescue of survivors from the torpedoed U.S.S. Indianapolis in 1945, risking 12-foot swells to save crew members helplessly adrift in shark-infested waters.

 

1/104 Scale. This kit comes from the classic Monogram tooling. This was of the first Aircraft kits they produced along with the B-26 and the B-25 which we also own the tooling for. The kit features engraved markings and lots of rivets but is a classic. It has a wingspan of 12 inches and measures 8.25 inches long. Decals are included for 2 versions and it comes with a nice sprue of clear parts, 6 in total. New artwork based on a PBY rescuing the men from the ill fated USS Indianapolis. Painting and assembly required.
