1/72 Monogram HU-16 Albatross
For a couple of years I have been building models of Aircraft from my home town of Miami,Fla. and this is one of my favorites . The USCG Albatross which were based at Dinner Key then at Opa Locka airport. I used the old Monogram kit sanding off all the rivets and fixing all the fit problems. I used the old USCG decals from Super Scale and rub off lettering for the Miami The wing walk were from my scrap pile. It was sprayed with White then masked off and spraying the Orange. The antenna wires were made with Invisible thread. This makes about my 20th Albatross done as I used to build a few of them for the folks at Chalks Airlines.
