Post 315 – Monogram 1/48 scale PBY-5 Catalina – Get Over It!


I know what went wrong.

7 engine assembly 8 wing tip float assembly


The left engine was not fully inserted into the engine cowling causing a missed alignment which led to this.


So I will have to get over it and it will stay that way forever.

I have learned a lot since I reunited with my forgotten hobby back in December 2013 with one exception: forgetting to always dry fit parts before glueing them.

Double-checking and even quadruple-checking are sometimes not enough.

I will try my luck next with the pontoons, but then maybe it’s not a good idea to install them right away.



I sure hope Plane Dave is reading all this.
