Dave Flitton I like what I see! Maybe it will give me more inspiration to complete my build
8. December 2014 at 21:00:12
Vegard Øksenholt I'll be watching this one. What a great start!
9. December 2014 at 16:53:00
Philip De Keyser Thanks guys for your nice commence, she's almost ready for some paint on the inside, pictures will follow later ;)
9. December 2014 at 20:39:42
Kim Branders A big .
10. December 2014 at 06:56:25
Soeren . Count me also in! Bought this kit a few weeks ago and really curious how it will look like ;)
10. December 2014 at 06:59:17
Matthias Weiss Uuuuhhh that´s gonna be interesting! I´m in!

Vegard Øksenholt @Philip Is the details added from research?
10. December 2014 at 15:21:19
Philip De Keyser @Vegard, I've get my information of the interior on the internet to mimic as closely as possible, I know as I made it now may not be the correct one but when the hulls are closed there is not much more to see of the inside, I just wanted to update a bit the internals because these are a little poor
@Kim, thanks mate
@Matthias, gerald and John, thanks for the nice commence mates.
Greetz, Phil

Christian Lehmann Look's promising. I'll stay tuned.
10. December 2014 at 16:44:18
Predrag Ivanovic It seem's to Me that wiil be a great looking modell.can't wait for more pictures (I have one in my stash, so your work is great for reference).
10. December 2014 at 18:30:38
Dave Flitton Now you've done it! It has to be your best masterpiece now. You have got all these people watching with baited breath!!
10. December 2014 at 19:26:11
Vegard Øksenholt @Philip I guess references from most Catalinas should be close enough. The Black Cat's antennas kind of suggests there should be some sort of radio/radar equipment somewhere though, but it's hard to find interior pics of this particular aircraft on google. Probably nothing that would be visible anyway :)
10. December 2014 at 20:12:52
Philip De Keyser @Vegard, indeed in the Black Cat's was a radio and radar equipment but like you say nothing is visible when it's closed, so I decided not to make it
10. December 2014 at 21:08:09
Matthias Weiss @ Dave: Don´t put too much pressure on him, he might transfer it to the model and break it... :)
11. December 2014 at 03:53:28
Philip De Keyser Don't worry Matthias, this is totally fun, I won't break it, and pressure, what is that? ;)
11. December 2014 at 16:35:13
Philip De Keyser First color is on the inside, next will be to paint the details
Greetz, Phil
11. December 2014 at 21:29:08
Dave Flitton Why yellow? All the pictures I have seen from WWII (color) were Chromate Green?
12. December 2014 at 07:01:09
Philip De Keyser The instructions says chromate green Dave, This is the first layer, the next layer is a thin layer of chromate green and the details that there now are will be remain by the chromate green. It is perhaps an unusual method but I wanted to try this.
Greetz, Phil
12. December 2014 at 19:55:03
Guido Haesevoets 5y), I'll follow!
13. December 2014 at 21:51:48

Greetz, Phil
22. December 2014 at 14:59:13
Phil Marchese Is the external finish a satin (semi-matte) very dark charcoal gray?
22. December 2014 at 15:13:58
Philip De Keyser Hi Phil, on the external isn't any paint sofar, this is only a dryfit of the body.

Burkhard D Clean build, great shading and a very creative presentation!
I guess the base is an A4-size frame, showing to advantage what a big beast this is. :D

Christian Bruer Nice Cat! Bravo-Zulu
17. February 2015 at 18:49:58
Vegard Øksenholt The result is amazing! Wow! Was it common to use support stands in the back of Catalinas, or was the model a tail sitter?
17. February 2015 at 18:50:17
Philip De Keyser It was not a tail sitter but the nose wheel was to fragiel and i have desaithe to make a support stand. Now its got more stability.
Thanks for your comment mates
