Hi Dok, That is a great looking model you have started. Please keep the thread going as you make progress. I am looking forward to its first flight. The Mariner is one of my favorite planes. I have attached two scans of a book I have that I am sure you will find interesting. Happy new year to you to. Dan.

Hi Bruce and Dan!
Thanks for the interest that you have shown and for the support !
I'll keep giving you information for the building progress.

I hope that the model will fly well and hopefully longer.The scans are really beautiful,i haven't got exactly this book .But this is a book for the next modification of MARTIN -P5M-MARLIN.

Good luck in the new year !

It's decided,that it will be in the same colours as the Argentinian Navy in the years after the second world war.

Looking good . . . I have seen people build using this material before, seems really amazing that you can build in enough strength to be able to support the weight of those georgious RCV's, what structure will be carrying all that load? How are you going to mount the throttle and where with the tanks go?

Here is a link to our club member John Nicolaci's all foam custom built PBM. It is quite a site to see. He will be going to the usually pond this year to fly it again this year. There is a few of us with float planes and John has permission to fly on a private pond. The owner is allowing us to all fly there. John is 85 and still flying.

Could you kindly tell where did you find these 3d models of the Martin Mariner?

I´m searching for this for a while and really would like to buid a smaller one, electric.

They were a normal sighting to my grand father, when he lied at Rio, in the WWII time, serving at the naval base.

See this picture.

Congrats from Brazil !
