    I've been looking, but just haven't seen one yet.
    I know FG is planning to put one out.

    paperwarrior,
    Modelcard produced one at 1:33rd scale. I had one
    but sold it. I checked papermodelstore and it was not
    listed there. It is #107 Grumman F3F-1 Navy Biplane.
    I have not done a Google search or checked Foreign
    sites. Hope this helps, Ron

    Modelik F3F

    This kit dates to 1997 and is good, but like their Westland Wyvern (also complex landing gear), the build is left to fabricate the main gear parts in metal or wood, perhaps plastic, your choice. I recall there may also be a cockpit, but the printed canopy is just that. You can cut out the printed glazing and use clear material for the glass. I don't recall how the wing struts are secured.
