    Erm....first pic in Post #1 is an F6F not an F4F. Sorry for the pedantry.

    Buffnut, are you seeing the same picture I am; one plane pulled apart from the rest on a carrier deck, wearing a pre-1943 color scheme, with the deck apes standing around getting their change of shift briefing? Sure looks to me like an early Pratt 1830 powered F4F, with its mid wing, fuselage mounted "pop-out"(hand cranked, BTW) landing gear, and its four wing mounted guns. (Don't be fooled by the outboard port on th starboard wing; it's a light.)

    Nope...it's changed. There were originally 3 pics in Post #1, the first being an F6F against a backdrop of another ship going past (destroyer, maybe...it was a shippy thing so I wasn't paying attention to it :) ).
