Weekly update on the 1/48 Trumpeter HU-16A Albatross

This week I was able to detail the engines with 30AWG wire, paint the fuselage, and tediously apply the very delicate decals. The aircraft was clear coated with a gloss and the landing gear was installed. All that is remaining is some final painting, antenna wires, and installing the clear lenses for all the lights. This should be completed by next week.

You can see all the photos and details from the start in the build log at 1/48 HU-16A Albatross USCG
