Well detailed PBY- Catalina.

I wonder if any of you young modders would care to do one of these in any configuration you choose civil or military I have found two example of the PBY but both are vary low quality and I mean low .dats and .dnms.
I understand that most of you are busy with school and jobs but I am in no hurry.I just think that an aircraft of this stature needs to be represented in YS since many are still flying to this day as firefighters and cargo as well as privately owned as examples of WWII history.
EDIT:Just added a few more images.

Well the catalina is a pretty neat plane. I have about three hours off this tuesday, should be enough for a base mesh (birdfarm quality or so) if anyone wants a stab at painting it, making the dnm work and a dat, I'll start us a joint projects thread.

Tl;dr I can make a base mesh, but I've not got the time for a full project to do this justice.

I think he's specifying a good one because he doesn't like that one can, but thanks for looking. :)

Thank you can for your efforts.I already found the junkyard/historical PBY that is the dark blue one and also the only PBY that is listed in Ys flight finder.
The light blue one is an unknown it was in my archives with no name in the read me or the .dat file.But I am thinking it might be a vary early effort by corsiar aka corset.
In case any body is wondering I had the historical pack in my archives as well.
