Very cool subject Kent, very much looking forward to following your build.......particularly the interior work after seeing your work on your B-25 and Mosquito.

 

Regards. Andy

I have a Danish Cat not to far from me at RAF Cosford. If you need anything (photo wise) let me know, I can pass by this Thursday. It's literally minutes from me..

'Just add water...' Sorry I just couldn't resist, but after all it's a 'sea' plane...

So, I spend all morning cleaning up the parts, although I must say I'm a bit intimidated by the sheer number of parts in this kit...

'. . . the sheer number of parts . . '

Almost as many as there are rivets.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

Spend some time cleaning up the parts, to my horror I realised, there are parts missing!!!

 

Going through every part again, I finally realized, all of the longitudinal strips were not in the kit!

So I contacted HPH in Czechoslovakia, great service, got the parts in the mail, just 3-4 days! - 

Thank you so much HPH...

Can't wait to see this come together. The Cat is on my wish-list for the future, will definitely be taking notes.

Wow, what a cool project! Glad that you could finally get one...it's a real thrill to get a kit near and dear to the heart. I know you will do a fabulous job on this one.

 

Happy for you,
