This is actually from the rarer PBN-1 Nomad variant of the Catalina.The PBN-1 was made by the Naval Aircraft Factory at Philadelphia. They made ca. 155 of which ca. 138 went to Russia on lend lease and a further 17 were used by the US Navy.

This is from the LHS/Port outer wing outrigger float that lifted into the wing edge during flight and lowered into the water for landing/taxying. The float was redesigned for the PBN-1 and its shape is specific to the PBN-1. A


This part came from Russia and was found at a crash site near Archangel where these PBN-1 's were used for convoy support in the North Atlantic on the infamous Murmansk convoys. A picture of the crash site is shown.
It has been lying outside in a forest clearing in the Tundra for > 70 years. Unfortunately no exact aircraft ident is possible.

We have repainted the outer surface in grey and off white and added the SNAFU Snatcher nose art that was applied to a Pacific PBY that was used for rescuing downed airmen.

It is a genuine WW2 part that we have added a new aluminium backing plate too. It has two key slots to allow it to be hung as a panel or a shelf.

The part measures 45 cm wide 30 cm high and 21 cm deep. It weighs 1.5 kg.

WW2 PBY Catalina Outrigger Float Mooring Point

A WW2 US made Consolidated Catalina PBY Out Rigger wing float mooring point.

This is actually from the rarer PBN-1 Nomad variant of the Catalina but used the same Consolidated Model 28 part numbered float mooring ring made by Alcoa. The 28 part number is stamped into the ring and is 100% confirmation that this is from a Catalina.

This is from the LHS/Port outer wing outrigger float that lifted into the wing edge during flight and lowered into the water for landing/taxying. The ring was used to moor the aircraft when docked.

The PBN-1 was made by the Naval Aircraft Factory at Philadelphia. They made ca. 155 of which ca. 138 went to Russia on lend lease and a further 17 were used by the US Navy.

This part came from Russia and was found at a crash site near Archangel where these PBN-1 's were used for convoy support in the North Atlantic on the infamous Murmansk convoys.

It has been lying outside in a forest clearing in the Tundra for > 70 years. We have images of the crash site. Unfortunately no exact aircraft ident is possible.

The green paint is the remains of the original chromate green paint used as a primer. There are also traces of the grey/blue surface paint visible. The LHS has faint traces of the underside white paint.

We have cleaned up the part and made a custom sweet chestnut stand to mount it on.

It is a genuine WW2 relic that can sit on your desk and you can tie items to it for safety!

The part measures 19 cm long 13 cm wide and 13 cm high. It weighs 1.5 kg.
