Default A flyable GST?

How about a flyable PBY-5 and a GST, the Soviet licence built version of the PBY-5, then? Would that be possible?

Never knew Soviets used Catalinas. I found some interesting stories of this beauty in Soviet hands http://lend-lease.airforce.ru/englis...es/commandeur/

I'm sorry, Sita! You are absolutley right! The PBY Catalina's were made by Consolidated and do not have any issues with the whole N-G-deal! Sorry! My mistake!

It's nice to have all the crew stations modeled in flyables, but most of us would be happy with just flying these big birds. In the first run it would suffice to have

- one 3D cockpit for the pilot;
- one 2D screen for the bombardier;
[- one 2D screen for the radar operator]

All the rest could be added later. It's fun to play a gunner, but modeling all the gunner stations for the B-17 and the like is probably not worth the time and effort.

I agree! The main thing is to fly! The gunner's station could be added later when it comes to the multicrew aircraft.

As I remember, Pe-8 and SB developments were crowdfounded. May be this is the way to go ahead with Cat or other interesting project.
...
Subject there is a designer and TD team has time to examine/adapt new model of course...

*Happy New Year*
