The PBY-5A Catalina flying boat was a versatile amphibious aircraft used by many of the Allies during WWII and after, including the RAAF.   Many downed airmen lived to tell the tail of the "Black Cat" that swooped down onto the ocean to pick them up after crashing into the sea.   They were used for search and rescue and could be armed with bombs and torpedoes and many U-boats and Japanese submarines fell to their precision attacks.  Several are still flying today.  Model is for Intermediate Modellers.
