Lexington's Trader paint scheme? Yeah, I could live with that.
yup, be able to paint it soon.... paintkit is 99.999999% done, just gotta finalise the layering and flatten a few layers down and then it's off to uncle Milton for you 'oiks' to get your grubby paws on :icon_lol: as for today.... i'm off to the Skydive Centre got some packing and jumping to do.... for once.... (Been 5mo since my last jump) :icon_lol: so Milton, expect Kit tomorrow or Saturday!.... or maybe even late tonight at a severe push:salute:
As you state, it just kept 'completing' someway short of the actual full download.
I got it eventually, so just keep punching that download button!
Not sure yet how I will proceed on the -3.
Thanks to everyone for the support; it is most appreciated.
Lazarus, I have an S2F-3 (S-2E) 3-view which shows a section through the upper bulge about 2-feet aft of the cockpit side-window. Scaling off the drawing (always a bad idea!), the bulge appears to be 5 to 6 inches wider than the frame (below the lap line). Does that match what you know?
The zip is downloading though. I think the systemwas feeling mal-adjusted last night.Kept kicking me off as soon as I went into the message manager. Doing it again. The only way I can stay logged is by reply with quote.

You can thank then-Secy of Defense McNamara.
This should help:
Background on the Evolution of Aircraft Designations
The S-2 is on p. 24
Lazarus, in the side-view u posted, note that sections "C" and "D" are mislabeled.
Navy designations confused McNamara so he ordered the change to the USAF system. I found the old Navy system to make more sense than the USAF system to me anyways.
My bad. didn't see that. So the bulge on that section is the avioncs/radar cooling scoop. Right about the C-1. Whole new hull, wider, fatter. deeper to give a bit more room under the wing box .
