Slowly getting the scratched details done for the exposed left engine...

There's no exhaust in the kit, so I had to improvise using some Milliput and styrene rod.

'Freestyling' a Carburetor for the engine.

If you have the B-17 from HKM. make a copy of the carburetor and you can probably use that for your PBY-5. I think those are Pratt & Whitney 1830

 

With mine I'm going to have to do the flame dampening exhaust as I want to do a black cat

Wow Kent, amazing work on the engines and intergrating them into the wing! Super fast work as well, do you ever have time to sleep or go to work as your modelling output is incredible.

Sorry, but I'm not the proud owner of HK Models B-17  :mellow:

Thanks Andy, all I can say is that I got an unusual amount of spare time at my disposal ;-)

Still going the extra mile.  It's nice to see.

You cut out the sail indent?

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Mark

 

I'm working on installing some light into the fuselage, the cutout is for some of the wires...

Heck Kent, impressive plumbing in 1/32nd!

 

Are you by chance a brain surgeon in real life?

 

Lovely work

I have been waiting for this moment for a very long time - Constructing the characteristic PBY work platform...

I began by making a mold of one of the walkways from the kit and casting some extra pieces for the work platforms.

 I don't think they were any 'one' color, so I decided on a neutral Navy grey

Thanks for looking in: Kent
