First of all, many apologies if this is in the wrong place or has been covered already.. There're a lot of forums here and I've gone for the one I think's most suitable, but I may be wrong.
I'm running FSX without Acceleration; I've been looking for a Catalina add-on because I've always liked flying boats and it seems a nice medium-sized aircraft that I can use for island-hopping and the like. But having checked a number of add-ons sites (flightsim.com first, obviously), I can't find one anywhere. In fact, all I can find is either the Mariner (too big), or new textures for the payware Catalina that, at the risk of seeming tight-fisted, I'd rather not spend money on at the moment.
Ah, who'm I kidding? I probably will buy the payware one - it does look very nice - but it won't be for a while yet. Actually, my question (aside from 'are there any free ones') is more why there don't seem to be any free ones in the case of this particular aircraft. It's a popular plane, after all; is there some sort of restriction on modelling it?
