    Hi all.

    I am currently doing a profile on a certain Wildcat variant (The F4F-3S) and I only have several (though not very clear) photos of this plane. I want to get the paintscheme and probably the lighting correct for this profile, so if anyone can provide me with some photos of this F4F I appreciate it.

    Thanks in advance.

    I can't find color but here are a couple of B W scans.I have a model I converted years ago of this airplane.I will dust it off tomorrow and post it. The color should be Non-specular Sea Blue with white lower surfaces.

    Thanks everyone! Nearly finished with the profile lighting, just have to revise several stuff on the paintscheme.
