Grumman essentially slapped some wings on a boat and, abracadabra, the HU-16 Albatross was born. Originally designed as a Navy rescue seaplane, several ended up in civilian service after their military retirement. One of those was Jimmy Buffet’s “Hemisphere Dancer.” Buffet retired the plane permanently in 2003, but it remains an icon of Parrothead culture.
This exquisite Grumman Albatross Hemisphere Dancer (Jimmy Buffet) Mahogany Model is handcrafted by our master craftsmen from the finest Mahogany Wood. Attention is given to every detail, resulting in unsurpassed quality. Models come complete with a detachable wood display stand. The model will be delivered to your door securely in a foam fitted shipping box. These models make a great gift for any aviation enthusiast, veteran or history buff alike.
