Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina Diecast Model
Chilean Air Force, #405 Manu Tara

Limited Edition

1:200 Scale   Length   Width
Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina   3.75"   6.25"

After more than 19 hours of continuous flight, "Manu-Tara" ("lucky bird" in the language of the Rapa Nui, the island's native inhabitants) reached Easter Island on January 20, 1951, the fi rst aircraft to bridge the distance from South America. This model depicts the airworthy replica, introduced at the FIDAE Air show in Santiago de Chile in 2014.

Consolidated PBY-5A Catalina

Designed to replace the Martin P3M, the PBY Catalina was first flown on March 28th, 1935. This aircraft is a long range patrol flying boat, one of the most rugged and versatile aircraft in U.S. history. Its long range assisted in the location and attack of enemy transport ships. A great advantage of flying boats is that they need no runway, however later PBY variants incorporated retractable landing gear, allowing for amphibious operation from land or water. Even today—more than seventy years after its first flight—the PBY continues to fly as an air tanker in firefighting operations throughout the world.
