    No, it's an SC-1. The -2 had a different cowl, a full-blown canopy--no framing--and a different side exhaust port, a bit like an FW or an F-4U-5

    There's a fairly wide-spread pic of a post-war catapult launch of a -d I've seen--sorry, don't have a link just now--showing the difference, and proving that at least some of the 10 -2's saw active duty.

    Oh, and virtually all float-planes in the USN came from the factory with wheels, and had the floats added later; I've seen SOC 's, Seamews, Kingfirshers, and SC-1 and SC-2 pics with without.
