Grumman Widgeon USCG
November 29, 2012 in Aviation
I present my build of the Classic Airframes Widgeon.
I chose the USCG markings because of its story, but also because I didn’t have any WW2 era Coast Guard Aircraft in my collection. The USCG did a lot to protect the Eastern Seaboard. I am especially proud of the hatch on the fuselage top- I used a trip to the museum in Pensacola to get lots of close up shots of theirs.
I also am proud of the stainless steel wires I used for rigging. I love Classic Airframes- wish they had put out a SOC-3 Seagull before going into hiatus.
