Abstract: The status is shown of a continuing effort to calculate fully non-LTE models of stellar atmospheres, including the blanketing of several million atomic transitions. In addition to the multifrequency/multigray algorithm for solving many coupled equations of radiative transfer, two independent ways of statistically treating the ensemble of transitions within an ion in non-LTE have been developed. The millions of real transitions are reduced to about 800 model transitions in 22 ions, well within the capabilities of the transfer algorithm. A model for a main sequence B-type star with an effective temperature of 25,000 K, a surface gravity of 10,000 cm/sec-squared, and solar abundances is presented.
