Model of the American flying boat from the World War II period, used in the Pacific theater.
Built in about 1:33 scale in black with "scraped" paint areas in dark gray. Depicts a Catalina from one of the "Black Cats" squadrons doing bomb and rescue missions, operating mostly at night.
A very graceful aircraft. I agree with Michael, black is looking really good here. You also took great pictures, something that isn´t quite easy with dark creations. Love those wires, too, that go from the wing to the tail. In reality, do they exist for stability reasons or even for the controls? Steffen
