Here's the standard US Navy color scheme:

Now, do you know where I can get the color scheme for the Canadian RCAF Coastal Command version? That's how I want to do mine...

good luck (and TIA),

PhotoVault Website -- PBY : Takes a second to load, there are four images here.

Here is a great link. I gave you the search results so you don't have to fumble around like I did Each link will have information and/or photos of the PBY. The location ones are neat too, as you can see the ones currently on display at museums and other places. At the bottom, there are a few photos, make sure to click on the "View more photos" in small print. Good ones there.

Aviation Enthusiasts Corner Website -- PBY

That should keep you out of trouble for a while. I know it did when I was searching for my DC-3 stuff.

Good luck,

Many thanks for your help so far.

I found some Royal New Zealand Navy-schemes. If anybody is interested:

@Davidfee: Sorry, but it seems quiet difficult to find something
about RCAF.
