Our U.S. correspondent, Vladimir Yakubov - a member of Silicon Valley Scale Modelers - was fortunate enough to come across this cracking example of an HU-16E U.S.C.G. Albatross at an airshow in the States. Two things you can immediately tell from these superb images; (1) It is a superb paint job and (2) It was very, very hot on the day! Many thanks, Vladimir, for sharing these with us. For more information on S.V.S.M. click here.
