Help on Grumman F3F...

Recommended Posts

Guys,

 

I just got a copy of the old Revell/Monogram Grumman F3F US Navy biplane. Does anybody knows where I can find good drawings on this bird?

TIA

I seen a walk around book when I was at the March field museum over the weekend that I wish I had a few years ago when I built one.

Rato,

 

A few F3F detail references are listed below. The 'In Action' includes multi-view drawings, but I don't know whether they're accurate.
