· # 25 "SERIE AERONAVAL"

JRF Goose, PBY Catalina, PBM Mariner & HU-16 Albatros
Jorge Nuñez Padín/february 2009
40 pages, black & white and color

The #25 book of the well known “Serie Aeronaval”, are dedicated for all of the four models of North American hydroplanes used by the Argentine Navy after the World War Two and up to the 70’s.
With an impeccable work of historical investigation and an insuperable quality of impression, the Ing. Nuñez Padín delivers us a very good quantity of photographies, many of them unpublished until now, accompanied with several profiles and excellent color drawings, with a great utility for the modellers. Also are some photos of very interesting details, and the drawings of "Photographer Penguin" applied in the Grumman Goose and of "Antarctic Penguin" of Catalina´s, some color photos of Albatross, included the impeccably restored one by the Museum of Naval Aviation. It was very pleasing for me, read the introduction written by the Captain (RE) Felix Medici, an incredible person, carried away about the planes, and to whom undoubtedly, we owe the preservation of various of the historical planes of our Naval Aviation, and to whom I had the immense pleasure of knowing personally, many years ago, in the Museum of Naval Aviation.
