F4F-4

FM-2 front view and cross section drawing

Yellow wing F4F-3s had been appeared since December of 1940 until March of 1941, and delivered to only VF-4 of USS Ranger CV-4 and VF-72 of USS Wasp CV-7. Thus, tailfins were painted only green (Ranger) and black (Wasp).

Markings of this period (the color of the cowling, fuselage band, wing band, code letters) were systematic. These are described in "Golden Wings 1941-1945 / Squadron Signals ISBN 0-89747-294-2".

The increasing prototype of Akeno Army Flying School. The camouflage pattern of its later fuselage half was assumption. The aircraft number might be painted on the tail fin, but it was unknown.

The last one is very rare camouflaged Hayate. The 3rd squadron of the 102 Sentai in Kyushu. A piece of rudder fabric painted in dark blue is preserved in Kawaguchiko ZeroFighter Museum. Other portion of this illustration is assumption including the production type.

P-51A flown by Capt. John Stewart of the 76th FS the 23rd FG, late 1943, Guilin. The position of the loop antenna is different from the 1st ACG's Mustang.

The last one is the same as my model. P-51A 43-6189 flown by Lt.Col. Philip G. Cochran, CO of the 1st Air Commando Group, early 1944, East India. The red border of the insignia was applied in a short period of the summer 1943. But I guess Cochran's aircraft still remained the red border for a substantial period of time as CO special markings.
