This kit comes from the classic Monogram tooling, and was among the first aircraft kits they produced. The kit 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. The oval PBY logo is on the decal sheet if you wish to mount your PBY on our clear globe swivel stand sold separately.

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.
