I wonder if anyone on here can help. I discovered these two images of a Grumman J2F-6 Duck on USCGS Edisio an icebreaker. Now I would like to make a model of this Duck but cannot find any other images. I suspect it has a Yellow centre wing section on an otherwise Gloss Sea Blue finish, but would like to confirm this with other photos. Can anyone help?

I can't see the photos. All I can see is a long, rectangular box with this in it:

Remarkably a 10-year old thread about Antarctic Operation Windmill on the otherwise very scuppered Key Aero Forum comes to the rescue

And a Russian site has a colour scan from an Air Enthusiast magazine which you will have to right-click!
