Australian Aero illustrator Juanita Franzi has sent these profiles for HyperScale's Gallery. The description of the aircraft is as follows:

The PBY-5AM designation was applied to the PBY-5A Catalinas that had been converted to flying boats. This modification was peculiar to the RAAF and became necessary when insufficient flying boat versions were available. A24-78 was received by the RAAF in January 1944 and served until mid 1945. It was put up for disposal in August 1946.

This colour profile is one of eight included in the recent reissue of Stewart Wilson's "Consolidated PBY Catalina in Australian Service", Wilson Media 2004 available from http://www.notebookpub.comn
