This HU-16E Albatross USCG airplane is a replica wood scale model of the original aircraft manufactured by Grumman. The HU-16 Albatross is twin-radial engine amphibious seaplane primarily used for search and rescue missions. While this display model is completed with the U.S. Coast Guard markings, the Albatross has also been used by the USAF and the USN. The aircraft began service in 1949, was retired in 1961, and 466 aircraft had been built.

The UH-16 Albatross Coast Guard model aircraft is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft that has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed. It also arrives with an attractive wood base for display.

Exactly What I Expected...Excellent
February 24, 2021
I worked on and flew as crew chief on the HU-16 Albatross many hours during my 20 year Coast Guard career. Tough ole Goat as we called them. The model I received will be passed on down to my grandchildren. It's one of 3 models of CG aircraft I have that I spent many hours in the air on Search & Rescue and other missions, and even more on the ground performing maintenance. Thank you for an excellent job.
