Introduction

Until I received this set off Garry Byk I didn't even realise that some of the Catalina's used by the RAAF had a different exhaust! Upon doing some basic investigation using the Stewart Wilson book covering the Catalina, I discovered a number of images that showed quite clearly these exhausts in use. This conversion comes with just the four exhausts as there is no requirement for any instruction sheet. I found a small amount of cleaning up is required for this set and would take about 30 seconds to a minute to do all four exhausts.
