PBY Catalina

Svenson Models Belgum's PBY Catalina

Consolidated PBY Catalina (From Wikipedia) (PB Standing for Patrol Bomber and Y the code assigned to Consolidated Aircraft ) First flight was 28 March 1935, During World War II, PBYs were used in anti-submarine warfare, patrol bombing, convoy escorts, search and rescue missions (especially air-sea rescue), and cargo transport. The PBY was the most numerous aircraft of its kind and the last active military PBYs were not retired from service until the 1980s. In 2014, nearly 80 years after its first flight, the aircraft continues to fly as a waterbomber (or airtanker) in aerial firefighting operations all over the world.

The plans for this PBY Catalina are on five pages with page 1 being the main plan sheet. Pages 2 through 5 are part templates for the model. The quality of page 1 is lacking in definition. While it may be useful generally, the the written descriptions are not English, highly pixilated and difficult to read. The wingspan of this model is roughly 30 inches and the plans do not indicate how or if the model is powered.

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the PBY Catalina plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
To order a scaled plan please copy the plan url or ID and send us a message with the desired wingspan an any other info you may find useful.

Postage:

Tracking:

Returns:

AeroFred.com is not a plans shop, we are a community of model builders exchanging model airplane plans in digital and physical formats, the digital format plans are free the prints have a cost and are printed on demand. Since we are not a shop, we don´t stock printed plans so when you order a paper print it will be created for you, for this reason we cannot accept returns.
It is very important that you download and inspect the pdf file before placing an order, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If after doing all this you still get a plan you don´t like we can always find a solution but it will never be a perfect solution so please download and inspect the pdf file before ordering. We will only refund plans that arrived damaged, not plans you order without being sure you like.

Payments:

Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.

About the Calculator:

The Plans Price Calculator will read the plan file and output all the information on the panel to the right according to the selected options, you can change the options and request a new quote at any time.
If you would like to print a plan that is not on the website you can upload it to the main plans category in pdf format, multiple sheets in the same pdf file, and use the Plans Price Calculator to get a quote and place the order.
