Does anyone know if anyone has any repaints for a plane my grandfather flew in WW2 in Queensland Australia??

 

The details of the plane are.............

Catalina PBY-5

Water Boat

Australian Airforce  registralion/serial #A24-60

WW2

He had a crash in Cairns Harbour on the 22nd of July 1943 where he lost his port side airscrew and caused a sharp turn portside and colided with an unlit beacon at night during take-off. 

I am hoping to recreate this incident in simulator but am only a few hours into this new hobby. Any assistance is appreciated.

 

Photos of the crashed plane are attached. 

Regards

Jason
