Here's something I saw on Bing search. It's for the F3F but basically the same. The F4F is a modified F3F, I read somewhere that the F4F was originally designed as a biplane. There's a picture somewhere of the first F4F with rounded wing tips and tail surfaces, it would be nice if there was a three view of it.

Here's the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grumman_F3F


I hope this helps.

Best regards,

Ron

OH Yeah mate!! Hope you can continue working on it, will fit my Hawk-III too :) BTW I think the upper wing should be closer to the fuselage, now is a bit too high. Hope constructive criticism is accepted, I'm sure Beo will say yes :D

I personally love these "old clunkers", I find them aesthetically more attractive, and more interesting to fly. 8-)

There is one of these sitting a swamp about 20 miles from my house. No one has been able to find it though because the swamp is so thick
