PBY Catalina model airplane plan

PBY Catalina

RC Modeler's PBY Catalina

CAD redraw of a classic RCM plan. No changes except the aileron option suggested.
I intend to build this plane to fly off a lake. Looking now for a suitable laser-cutting vendor in my area to supply the cut parts.
I know there is a guy on ebay that sells these already cut in short-kit form.
From what I saw this is the most buildable Catalina of all plans featured here or in other sites. I think that a moderately skilled builder should have no problem building this one. Reccommended Power is two electric motors, not much power should be needed as this bird has a high-lift wing profile and should be flown at moderate speeds.

I have seen a Catalina doing some type of survey, and flying low and slow. Really quite slow.
