1/72 5400 Monogram Grumman Albatross HU-16E Coast Guard
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Fair++
Hard to find Coast Guard version in one of two box variations for this issue. Features retracting landing gear, rotating wheels/props, three man crew, optional position door and two survivors in life rafts. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including decals and instructions. NOTE: one wheel and one prop shaft are silver (not white, like the rest of the parts). They are from an earlier edition of this same kit. The decals have some light bug damage and age cracking. Please see the article (located on this website) on how to save old decals. The Albatross was the primary sea rescue aircraft of the Aerospace Rescue and Recovery Service, a branch of MAC - Military Airlift Command. Operational service began in 1947 and Hu-16s saw wartime action in Vietnam. Many finished their careers in the Coast Guard.
