Of course I am not that cheap when it comes to start a new project especially this one. I bought some after-market decals on July 2 when I learned about the Saviour of Ceylon.
The link to the after-market decals is below…
Finally I will build my Monogram PBY-5 but not with the original decals.
Mine will be a tribute to the Saviour of Ceylon who is seen below second from the left.
As always this will be a way to remember someone who must never be forgotten for his life accomplishments.
Leonard Joseph (Birch) Birchall, CM, O Ont, air force pilot, war hero, educator (born 6 July 1915 in St. Catharines, ON; died 10 September 2004 in Kingston, ON).
During the Second World War, Birchall became known as the “Saviour of Ceylon” for alerting Allied forces of an approaching Japanese fleet. Captured after sending his message, he is also renowned for the courage and leadership he displayed while a prisoner of war.
