The twin-engine PBY Catalina was very popular at the time of WWII and was put to a wide range of uses by the U.S. Navy, including sea reconnaissance, transport, expedition, sea-rescue and fire-fighting. To date, with over 3000 units manufactured the PBY Catalina is the mostbuilt flying boat worldwide, with about 1400 of these being amphibious. The model Catalina is painted in the silver grey U.S. Navy trim, and has a robust fibreglass fuselage with pre-covered balsa wings and tail unit,
so that you can have this classic aircraft built and ready for flight in a minimum of time. Thanks to the water rudder, maneuvering and taking-off from water are no problem, and the stepped hull aids planning on touch-down. Just as can be expected of a flying boat, the Catalina responds gently but directly to the controls, adding greatly to the flying enjoyment.
