Very nice Igor. With that big wing full of fuel they had extreme endurance during WWII. Over were 3,300 were built. Some are still flying as water bombers or historic air tour planes 80 years later.

Yes, Jetz, great construction! She built in our country under license before WWII as GST. About 30 were built. And this Catalina is your canadian CANSO in original. Thank you for the comment, Jetz!
