    Does anyone have any drawings showing the gun and ammuniton arrangement for the F4F-3, F4F-4 and FM-2 Wildcat that they might be able to post? I am particularly interested in how the ammunition was stored in the FM-2 Wildcat (2 x .50 cal machine guns and increase ammunition load in each wing).

    Thanks.
