Does anyone have a since discontinued Hobby Lobby Grumman Albatross unbuilt or partially built kit for sale? Does anyone know who the manufacturer is/was or where I can find one? Thanks in advance, Bill

Have you checked with Hobby Lobby? They sponsor this forum. There is a hot link to them in the upper left corner of the page.

Thanks Jim. I actually did locate the kit and it costs about $225 shipped from Poland or somewhere. Too much money for me. I think I will go with the soon to be released by Tower Hobbies Great Planes PBY Catalina for $139 instead. Fifty three inch span, glass fuse and beautifully made. Check it out,

Bill

HVP Albatross and Catalina

Hi Bill and Others,

I've been reading this thread and the GP Catalina ARF thread. I know many of you have been wondering where one can purchase the HVP Albatross and HVP Catalina. You can purchase it from the following USA hobby shop/distributor:

www.ductedfans.com/planes_HU-16_Albatross.html

If this thread doesn't work try:

[url]www.ductedfans.com

Click on planes, then seaplanes. Hope this helps.

Thanks, Freddy. That is the bird all right but, at $269 it flew right out of my budget. I appreciate the info though. Bill
