Roland K Pleasure Arne :) I have been informed that the back of this kit is the wrong shape and there is a replacement after market piece out there. I personally think it looks ok, but I thought I would share that info if you are interested in getting the kit or thinking of building it. :)

Choppa Nutta The academy version is much better, mine fits poorly but then it is a a 1964 tooling :)
Liking the look of progress so far Gordon, nice to see you scratch building the interior, especially as none comes with the kit :)

Gordon Sørensen Thanks Choppa. Not sure how much of the cockpit will be visible, but am sure a lot will be seen through the bubbles on the back of the fuselage.
19. January 2015 at 00:09:12
Choppa Nutta yeah the back is a bit cavenous and without any detail in there it just looks odd, I've cheated on mine, I've just drawn in some detail with a black fine tip pen etc. inaccurate but effective :)
19. January 2015 at 00:15:53
Clifford Keesler I would love to build one of those, but it would have to be 1/48. 1/72 is just to small I can't see it anymore. But I still have a ESCI 1/72 F-27 Spanish Navy that I keep holding onto.
1. February 2015 at 02:34:15
Gordon Sørensen Some Mr. Surfacer 1000 and some putty for the fuselage seems.
10. April 2015 at 04:47:19
Gordon Sørensen Some work done on the wing. Fairly large wingspan when all three pieces are joined.

Thomas Bischoff What a nice Cat! The Dutch colours and markings look good.
9. March 2016 at 19:55:29
Jan Voorbij Here is some information about this a/c:

The Y-38 was the first of 78 Catalina's that were delivered to the Marine Luchtvaart Dienst (MLD). The first batch were of the flying boat version PBY-5, soon to be followed by the amphibian version PBY-5A. Catalinas were in Dutch service from 1941 to 1959. The Y-48 was mainly used for reconnaissance missions as "eyes of the fleet" and rescue work and patrolled together with Catalinas from the RAF and the US Navy, that were temporarely stationed in the Dutch East Indies to anticipate the Japanese advance. On Februari 9 1942, when evacuating Europeans from Ketapang, Borneo, it was atacked by Japanese Zeroes while still in the water and damaged. The passengers and crew jumped in the water where one of the pilots was killed by a caiman. The Y-38 managed to get airborne and tried to reach its base near Surabaya on Java. However, it had to make an emergency landing not far from its base, but sank after being rammed by a motorboat from an American destroyer.

12. March 2016 at 07:51:23
Jan Voorbij Thank you guys. A very elegant aircraft indeed! That is why I didn't want to use the beaching gear and scratched my own stand so the clean lines would not be disturbed and that its true nature as a flying boat would be clear. BTW, did you know that after the fall of the Netherland East Indies "our"Cats were deployed from Australia, Ceylon and South Africa, doing recce, transport work and U-boat hunting?

Choppa Nutta Photo 8 should be your Teaser :)
yeah the scotch pad is a neat effect, makes the black more interesting.
But man those decals are bright !! a few thin layers of dark gray wouldn't hurt and the nice thing is with the patchy texture you wouldn't need to be very even about it either, easy fix :)

Gordon Sørensen Managed to get a start on this one! The centre wing section and one aileron were slightly warped but I think they are straight now. Made some bulkheads, one behind the cockpit, one forward of the side blisters, and one behind.
30. November 2014 at 16:33:32
Gordon Sørensen Found a mission prop blade at the bottom of the Box so reattached that, Mounted the bulkheads, and added stringers to the fuselage. Boxing in the nose wheelwell and then have to figure out where to mount some weight so its not a tailsitter.

Kelly Wellington So, you're doing wheels down?
16. January 2015 at 03:24:52
Gordon Sørensen Yes Kelly, and seriously thinking about the Scale Aircraft Conversion White metal set!
16. January 2015 at 03:52:16
Logan Eden Good Morning, Gordon Thanks for posting, and the scratch build bulkheads look very fine. Catch Ya, Logan

Kelly Wellington Well...It was originally intended to be completed wheels down. That died when I failed to weight before joining the fuselage halves. The closed nosewheel compartment hatches are goobered. The landing gear hatch covers are goobered, too. The cabin had to be extended with a plank shim to get the clear canopy to even fit, so there's a new 'bulkhead' behind the pilot/copilot seats. The attempt to include the waistgunners failed when their heads impeded installation of the clear blisters. And then there was the infamous strut fit issue which necessitated building one anew from scratch. One float folds up and becomes a wingtip, the other is glued into place. One blister door swings up and stays in position, the other falls back. Luckily, the machine gun mounted on that side also moves, where the flappy door side gun wouldn't stay in place and had to be glued.

I like the finish I got on the paint job and the decals were just fine.

Choppa Nutta nice one Kelly :)
I really must finish mine now :D

Kerry COX Phil, What a perfect comment about his work. :)
8. January 2015 at 13:20:55
Kelly Wellington Thanks, mates. As a relative novice, I'm feeling a bit more confident with some skills, but others remain...in need of upgrading. One of these days, I'll actually fit myself with an airbrush.
8. January 2015 at 16:04:36
Kerry COX Getting your first air brush is when modelling takes on a whole new meaning, and won't you have fun !!! :). Just remember, keep your gun clean. :)
8. January 2015 at 20:08:05
Kelly Wellington Before that, I need to learn how to attach prop blades to hubs in those kits (like Special Hobby, Pavla and MPM) where they come as discrete parts. I have only done it once and the result is not especially impressive.

Kelly Wellington So...I'm back from holiday and it's time to get back to sanding on this thing....
6. November 2014 at 03:19:21
Ben STONE I finished this kit a few weeks ago....terrible! Crap loads of flash on the sprues, parts falling off and terrible fit. I wasn't aware of weight needed up forward until too late and by that time I didn't care. As Kelly said, you'll have to fill around the main canopy and the landing gear struts are very flimsy. I'm also led to believe that the rivets on top of the wing aren't meant to go all the way to the back of the wing although I'm not positive about that. It's put me off Airfix for a while. Good luck and enjoy it for what it is. :)
6. November 2014 at 04:32:23
Kelly Wellington I'm still sanding. I'm getting closer, but I'm still sanding.

think its bad? try the spitfire Vb in 1:24.. same age mold and boy it shows.

NEW Airfix molds.. far far far better.

Augie how did you do the chipping?
8. September 2014 at 20:42:10
Thomas Poelkemann the plane was, a basic colur like Aluminium, hairspray and the final colour coate (Acrylic). But something went wrong :( . I used an hard brush and an old toothbrush. to brush off the Acrylic from the Aluminium base coat.
i don´t know way but the base coat went off as well. That create some off the chipping. But for further painting i have to mask the greyblue with with masking tape of course. As I removed the masking tape I had the chipping effect again.
To fill it with colour I used Alclad Aluminium. I used a very thin Brush and the very thin Alclad went into the "holes" a I got my chipping effect. not as I want it but it looks god too me. :)
8. September 2014 at 21:48:49
Augie Thomas, I wouldnt complain it looks bloody excellent.. gives me ideas for mine :)
8. September 2014 at 22:07:11
Choppa Nutta there are quite a few different chipping techniques, I just had a go at the salt one but over did it, also had the same problem with masking tape removing paint for yet more chipping effect....
I like the way you've got it looking well used but not overly so, very natural looking indeed.

Urban Gardini It should've been moulded in clear resin instead considerin' the big glass bulbs that is so distinctive for the PBY-5
11. August 2013 at 10:28:03
Mike McCabe I don't think clear resin is any use in this type of casting, it is a different sort of material. I have never seen it used.
11. August 2013 at 10:44:50
Urban Gardini It should work fine! The clear resin that I've seen so far have been of good quality n' some modern 1:350 kits have their planes in clear styrene so why not...
11. August 2013 at 11:10:00
Mike McCabe Because those in 350 are styrene, not resin!
11. August 2013 at 11:37:02
Urban Gardini Yes but I've seen clear resin moulds as well n' it would work. I even know of one builder that makes a lot of own moulds for his dioramas n' he uses clear resin.
11. August 2013 at 12:09:25
Mike McCabe Then if you think so I recommend carefully removing any parts which should be clear with a fine saw and casting in clear resin.
