Default Giant PBY

I'm about to start a winter project of a 100 inch PBY, twin electric .60s. I'm fairly new to electric and not sure what the battery package should look like.

Did you get this finished? started? I have a 103" Catalina, and just thought I'd check in to see how you made out.

Ron,

That's his only post and he hasn't been back on-site since then.....interesting project, too bad he didn't continue the build on here...

Default Progressing

I hadn't gotten too far. I did pick up the kit from Bill Price at G&P Sales in Walla Walla. We spent a good afternoon together in his shop. The retracts he produces are scale and the hardest part of the project. I'll get some pics together. I did put together a couple of other twins just to get the hang of it. The PBY should be an easier flyer than the P-38 I've flown.
