What a sweet build of otherwise forgotten Revell PBM-5 Mariner. :smiley:
Two tone grays give it spot on appearance.
Remember the kit well.

Great work Nils. I always like the contrast between the International Orange and the two greys.

Very nicely done Nils!  A great idea and lovely camo and decal work.  Think it's time to drag the old Mariner out of the stash  ;)

Best regards,
