Looking For A small/Med. PBY, Catalina or Albatross Model


Hi Folks,
I'm new to this site but could use your help. I'm looking for a small/med size electric model of a PBY, Catalina or Albatross kit or complete model I can fly (new or used). I do a lot of summer boating and this would be fun.
I have really enjoyed this site and thanks to those who have particapated!

Your question is a tough one. Hobby Lobby used to import both the Albatross and the PBY made by HVP. I could never get an answer why HL stopped importing them. At one time Quantum Models still had the PBY, but I just checked their website and don't see it anymore.

The link to HVP website which is in the Czech Republic some place is http://www.hvp-modell.cz/ The website seems to indicate they still make both models. They don't appear to list any importers in the US. That is all I can make out from the website. I don't speak the language.

Sorry I wasn't any more help.

The Mallard looks like a nice kit and priced right at $129.00 http://www.kamodels.com/
