After such a long break from plastic. I went down memory lane and thought I would build the Airfix Catalina again (last one I built, was back in 67 I was 14. Model was available from 1964 to 1978. Reissued in 1980. Reissued from 1986.). I donít know why, but I assumed that the kit might have been improved in the 40 odd years that have passed. Oh dear. Itís showing its age. No detail on Cockpit or blisters to help with framing and the cockpit glass did not fit fuselage anyway. Moulded parts not aligning very well. But now itís done Iím smiling as although it has many faults regards the detailing it dont look bad for a 40 year casting .
