    I am looking to build an FM-2 Wildcat from VC-91, which was assigned to the USS Kitkun Bay. Their complement was 16 regular FM-2 Wildcats and one FM-2P Wildcat.
    Does anybody know what the tail "codes" (and any other unit-specific markings) were, for that squadron? Timeframe was around January 1945.

    TIA

    I know what the unit emblem looked like , they were known as the "Fighting Green Weenie" , if you need a leather patch to go with you model drop me a pm for details, as to thier tail markings I suggest you contact thier current "Reunion" page, usually most have an online site , they should be able to help , just Google the ship and you should find an addy for them........................
