Hi all, here is my Revell 1/48 scale Catalina. It took me  around one year to put this beauty together. I used Quickboost engines and Eduard photoetched set to make it more realistic. I decided to build No. 4-J-9, which served during WW2 in the Atlantic. The plane was painted with GSI acrylic paints. H42 Blue gray and H51 Light gull gray for the fuselage. H58 for interior. US Navy insignia was painted using Tamiya masking tape.

Next part was to make it a little bit worn out. I used classic methods known to everybody like pre and post shading, dry brush and filters.

At the end I added some pigments. The final effect is not perfect, but I am still learning :-). 

Enjoy the photos.
