The 1/12 scale Grumman HU-16 Albatross is a sport flyer designed to be as much fun to build as it is to fly. Construction is a breeze with Park Scale Models trademark 'Plans-Free' laser-cut interlocking construction, allowing you to be off the building board and in the air in less time than you've ever imagined for a giant scale model!

You're sure to get plenty of attention anywhere you take your Albatross to fly. With it's 96.6" span and light wing loading, the Grumman Albatross is perfect for shooting "Splash and Go's" or circling the lake low and slow on a "Search and Rescue" mission. With optional removable landing gear, the Albatross can even be enjoyed at your local field if no water is available.
