    “Catalina” PBY-6A (1:72)

    France's Sécurité Civile, based in Marignane near Marseilles, was originally (1963-1970) named the Protection Civile. The fire-bombers used 9 PBY 'Catalinas', which have now been superseded by Canadairs (mainly CL-415). The model here is that of F-ZBAW, a 'Pelican Jaune', which entered into service in 1964, then demobbed in 1975.
