Minicraft 1/72 PBM-5 Mariner USN
The PBM was designed in the late 1930’s and first deployed in the early 1940’s as a sea based U.S. Navy patrol bomber and transport for men and material. The Mariner was also well suited for search and rescue operations.
The PBM was a large aircraft carrying a crew of 7 to10 crewmen and a flight range of over 2000 miles.
This new 1/72 scale plastic kit represents the PBM-5 seaplane which was the single most produced aircraft in the Mariner family. This PBM-5 seaplane features new tooling for “beaching gear” and depth bombs for positioning in the fully detailed mariner Bomb bays.
