Raphael Shelton Years later...almost done! LOL. I just need to add finishing touches.
I find that I really enjoy painting as much in place as I can. And since I mostly brush, that works pretty well.

Lessons from this one.
!. Add the props last. always. I've broken both of them, multiple times. Re-attached the blades by drilling out a hole in the spinner and the blade and using a tiny bit of paper clip as an internal support.
2. When using the airbrush, mask more than semes reasonable.
3. Make a note of which color you use, so that when you come back months later, you get it right the first time.
4. I need to work on my seams!

Terry Hill I'm going to be starting this kit soon, and would appreciate anyhints or tips you might have - particularly if you used the Eduard photo-etched detailing kit. I've never worked with PE before, and I'm a bit nervous.
29. April, 15:00
Christian S. Hi!
I didn't use Eduard PE on this model. But if you use Cyanacrylat glue and a good knife you should be good.
The most difficile part is the landing gear. The Catalina is quite heavy and the gear a bit wobbly. The fit is excellent, almost no filler needed.
I hope my answer was helpful.
29. April, 16:31
Terry Hill Yes, thank you so much.

Chris McLain It's going to be a while for this one, but I'm trying to get all the pieces together. I found an awesome color reference photo of a WWII Catalina being broken out of ice in Alaska. I'm new to ScaleMates, but I'll try and post it. Right now I'm working on a Russian tank and truck diorama.

19. January 2015, 00:04
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, 00:09
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, 00:15
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.

Gordon Sørensen Some Mr. Surfacer 1000 and some putty for the fuselage seems.

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.

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?

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, 16:33
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 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.

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, 03:19
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. :)

Augie how did you do the chipping?
8. September 2014, 20:42
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, 21:48
Augie Thomas, I wouldnt complain it looks bloody excellent.. gives me ideas for mine :)
8. September 2014, 22:07
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.

If the 1976 came before the 1977 box of the tall tail civilian nose then it should be noted as new parts. I dont know which box came first but there is something backwards in the present timeline.

These dates and boxes may be out of chronological sequence however whatever the order the -5 and the -5A had significantly different major parts.
