I recently found a group who are restoring a PBY Catalina. I E-mailed them and showed them my work. They love my work and agreed to help me with building the 3D cockpit!!! The stuff I dragged from there page has already helped me a LOT. I found a few glaring errors in my model and I spent yesterday fixing it. The pit just got 10X more complex! I think that I may have Jippo's Ju-88 beat for the most complex cockpit...

This Catalina is in Skagit County Regional Airport (BVS) is in State of Washington. If anyone is in the area with a digital camera, I think I can get you into the cockpit. Please E-mail me at gibbage@lycos.com if you willing to snap some photo's.

"Most P-39's were sent to the Russians - so I guess that was an American secret weapon against our Russian allies."
