Igor Kolokolov came across this 'naked' HU-16 at the 2012 Oshkosh Show in the USA and shot this superb walk-round to share with us all. What's very significant about this particular WR is that, with the airframe completely devoid of any paint, one can see all the rivets, joins, panels lines; indeed, all of the airframe surface is completely exposed, something that a painted aircraft doesn't show in such detail making this series of images quite unique!

My grateful thanks - as ever - goes to Igor, for being in the 'right-place at the right-time' again, as usual..!
