Albatross around my neck :)
Well it was a long journey this my first Trumpeter kit, mods include Alley Cat canopy, bubble windows on the side, Navy tail and wing antenna, engine mods to get them close to being correct, float angle, clear beads for wing tip lights and tail strobe...I'm sure there were more. Overall I loved it, great kit, needed work yep, more than I did to be 100% accurate...yep, but man it was fun and looks the part, so I am good with it! Hope if nothing else it inspires HU-16 fans to give the kit a go.
