Question Any info on Felixstowe F2A Nr 4543 ?

Hi All:

I'm about to start the Roden Felixstowe F2A and wish to mod it a little.

I have Windsock #82 and have found Nr 4543 on page 29 (text) and page 33(pic) that had a gun platform raised above the hull & behind the wing center section. One can see the vertical stripes circling the aft fuselage, but that is it. I do not know color, nor do I know what the front color scheme may be.

Does anyone have any more info on this particular aircraft ? I think I've looked about as far as I can on the net for info & more details on the F2A boats themselves.

Thanks in advance:
John Ratzenberger

PS: There is a drawing of what appears to be the same aircraft on the Roden site http://www.rodenplant.com/IMG/047/draft.jpg , but it does not answer my questions (except imply horizontal stripes on the front fuselage), nor am I content to wait on their kit.

Cross & Cockade Intl. and Over the Front journals have great articles on the Felixtowe service.

Thanks guys, but I have Windsock#82 and have been all over those two sites with no results. I guess I'm going to have to "wing it" ....
