Thanks everyone! :)

In the midst fifties the most F3UL became obsolete because of the jet era. The USN sold several F3UL-5 and F3UL-5T's to South-American countries. Here are two; one from Honduras and one from El Salvador, used in the football-war.

With both El Salvador and Honduras operating very similar looking aircraft, I suspect target discrimination became a major training point for pilots.

In the second half of 1942 Vought-Lavochkin came with F3UL-2B version. It was both delivered to the Russia and the Navy of the USA. Here is one from VF-11 beginning 1943 and one from the Rumanian airforce. They captured one from the Russians and it was used in a raid against B-17's on Ploesti in 1944. Part of the linedrawing is from the Me-309 made by Greg (GTX).

On the day when our queen in Holland abdicated and we have an new king, i send you two more F3UL-versions. Vought-Lavochkin built the F3UL-4 in 1943, it was used in England were they received the F3UL-4 from Canadian Car and Foundry Company with a different engine and the F3UL-4A which was mainly used by the Marines. here is one from 414 sqn RAF (with the tailhook, it was originally ment for the FAA) and one from VMF-214.

That CanCar F3UL-4 is one tough-looking fighter! Is the radiator retractable?
