I noticed in the list of flyable aircraft to be released soon in the patch does not include the PBY.

This seems a pity given the active role PBYs played in the theater. The AI has been developed so why not just add the cockpit and make flyable. Not a whinge just a hope.

Gibbage would be your best hope on this one... I believe he was taking donations to get it flyable

He is (from my Understanding ) is working in the PBy side by side with the spitfires. From the last screenshot i saw the gun blisters are near done.

Yeah, I too saw the shot with the gun blisters being worked on. He's trying to get it done methinks. It'd be a strange but interesting addon to be sure.

I'm trying to talk him into building the Black Cat version. It had 4 fixed 50 caliber guns in the nose and could carry a torpedo + 2x500 lb bombs or 2x1000 lb bombs + 2 500 lb.

I have also seen a picture of a "Black Cat" PBY with 2 20mm's mounted in the nose. I'm guessing they were scrounged from wrecked P-400's on Guadalcanal.

There's really no point to the Black Cat model. Those are field mods. Let's let the amphibious model and the seaplane models done first along with cockpits

it should be, the PBY would make the sim even better, it would be good to have a float plane for once
