1/48 Trumpeter HU-16A Albatross USCG

This build is the Trumpeter 1/48 HU-16A Albatross. I chose the United States Coast Guard scheme from 1957 using Caracal decals. The kit itself comes with a small photo etch set for added details, metal landing gear struts, and rubber tires. I scratch built all the fine details in the interior. The fit of this kit was very good. It did require a little “adjustment” to the canopy section but everything else fit nicely. The instructions are well laid out making assembly easy.
