Hi everyone.

This is the last model I did.  I finished it on April 2010.

The kit is the Revell’s Martin PBM-5 Mariner in 1/118th  scale and it was converted to PBM-3S version.  For this conversion, I had to make a new radome, a new front visor and the beaching gear.  I had also to do the antennas.  For the decals, I used my homemade decals.

The model represents the plane that flew into the VP-211 in the 40’s and it was based in the city of Aratu (Brazilian state of Bahia) with a detachment in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Greetings from Brazil.

Thanks.
