Here another selection of little known US Navy aircraft.
Some never got past testing, some used in far away places.
For most of these I made the decals myself or used spares from the sparebox.
To everybody a very happy christmas and a lovely building 2018 !

First off is a beech JB-1 Command aircraft circa 1937 AZ models

Next is a DHC Otter U-1A used in antarctica, this particular Otter Bu.no. 142424 crashed there and was a total write off. Model is a Hobbycraft Otter.

Another great selection of lesser known USN types, very nicely built indeed. A Merry Christmas to you too, Navy One.

Always nice to see the unusual subjects that the Navy has used in its time. Lovely work.
