Designed alongside the PBY Catalina, the PBM Mariner was a twin-engine maritime patrol bomber used by the U.S. Navy throughout World War II and in the years after. Mariners flew anti-submarine and maritime patrols, as well as sea rescue missions, proving quite successful in both roles. More than 1,300 aircraft of the type were produced, in several variants, and they were used by multiple Allied nations.
The Privateer modeled here is a PBM-3, the first major production variant, with U.S. Navy dark blue livery. A beautiful finish and quality handcrafted construction will make this model a prized part of any collection.
