      Hello all. I just acquired a 1/72 Airfix kit of the Consolidated PBY5 Catalina. I'm planning to make a CHALK's Airways example. I am in need of a starboard side outer main lower wing half. If you have a boneyard or parts bin with such piece, I will gladly pay a fair price. As always, thanks for the help.
      Regards, Art

      I have been able to secure a lot of bits'n kits at flea markets to mix'n match into several complete kits. I am good to go for a few builds at a very affordable cost. Hey, guys ! don't overlook your local garage sales and flea markets for stuff you have been trying to find. A lot of folks just want to get rid of kits because they have no interest in the hobby. But.... I always try to be fair.
      Bon Chance !

      Yes it is a very ancient kit. And it is still being recycled by Airfix today. Different packaging & decals, but same parts moldings. I now have an all white kit with a grey wing section.
