    I love float planes but I kinda suck with remembering facts about them (names , history ...etc) But with these 2 planes I will improve my searches on float planes, thanks for the amazing work you both :D

    I did nothing all day other than working on the turrets. Thought process was "Fuck it, if I'm building a Mariner, I'll at least make my favorite version!"


    Still have to make the nose turret & add the waist guns.

    Dude, it's only been 2 weeks, Joel's been busy working on fixing up the Mitchell during that time, and that results of that will be implemented in the Mariner. Occam's Razer and I have been working on cleaning up the 3d model in the meantime, and after all that's finished, we gotta get it UV unwrapped and start work on textures and programming the cockpit gauges

    Occam's Razer's just about done making the 3d model a bit more plasent to look at, only missing a few elements. After that, we can work on the UV, I can make some textures, we get the jbeam working again, and then we program all the gauges and get the sound working

    The PBM-5 was used extensively during the Korean War, the field modification being dubbed the PBM-5S-2. The 5a came too late to join in, and was mostly used for training, with some being bought and used by the dutch navy. The US Coast Guard also kept using it, and an airliner version was used by Portugal and a few other countries.
