Hasegawa 1/72 S-2 Tracker

Hi,
I have just received the result of some successful bidding:
Hasegawas old Tracker, together with some Superscale decals.
There's an interesting option with the decals for a South Korean
Aircraft and I am looking for some further references for a
R.O.K.-Tracker, especially regarding the color scheme. (includes Dark
blue)
As usual, I have found nearly nothing in the net. If anybody knows
about some good links, please let me know.
Microscale instructions are not that detailed...
Thanks
Ingo

If anyone following this thread has an extra set of props for the Hasegawa kit would you please get in touch with me.
Used mine for a set of Yak-11 conversions.

S2 Trackers that flew from the USS Intrepid CVS-11 until decommissioning in 1974 were painted low vis gray top to bottom, including radomes and the mad boom. The FUD variant had a flat black leading edge on the radome, all else was low vis gray. There were red markings to beware of props. Squadron insignia was left to the devices of the individual squadron, many were very colorful. COD (Carrier Onboard Delivery) variants for carrying mail and up to 9 personnel were likewise painted in total in low vis gray. Box art from HobbyCraft shows a blue S2 but it is not a Navy bird. The Hasegawa box art I have shows a late model S2 painted in white. Again, I have never seen a US Navy S2 painted in anything except low vis gray. If memory serves, light gull gray from Model Master is very close, and is as close to the real thing when used with a flat white undercoat. R/S Bruce Apple (former TM2) Plankowner, USS Intrepid

When the Tracker first entered USN service as the S2F-1 it was Glossy Sea Blue overall.

HobbyCraft also makes a decent 1/72 Grumman S2 Tracker. The kit number is HC1350. Last time I checked Megahobby had them available on their site. That particular kit had an S2 painted out in Blue fuselage with white to very light gray bottom. Radome was tan. It's a nice kit, easy build, good fit and finish. HTH, Bruce

Not quite an answer to the question, but Modeldecal had a sheet (don't remember which sheet), that had some very nice markings for a Dutch S2F.
