Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina Diecast Model
PBY Foundation, Lelystad, Netherlands

1:200 Scale   Length   Width
Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina   3.75"   6.25"

Built in 1941, this Catalina is the oldest PBY-5 still flying today. It is operated by a Dutch foundation mainly for scenic flights out of the town of Lelystad, just northeast of Amsterdam.

Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina

Designed to replace the Martin P3M, the PBY Catalina was first flown on March 28th, 1935. This aircraft is a long range patrol flying boat, one of the most rugged and versatile aircraft in U.S. history. Its long range assisted in the location and attack of enemy transport ships. A great advantage of flying boats is that they need no runway, however later PBY variants incorporated retractable landing gear, allowing for amphibious operation from land or water. Even today-more than seventy years after its first flight-the PBY continues to fly as an air tanker in firefighting operations throughout the world.
