    This is a McKinnon Super Widgeon conversion.
    Aside from the engines and right side cargo door the details are the same for most Widgeons.
    This is the exterior walk around, interior photos to follow.
    N.B. : This walk around is also very useful for those who plan to use the Khee-Kha Art products ( http://www.mtaonline.net/~zdk/ ) 48th scale Super Widgeon conversion since this is the airplane the conversion was based on.
    [[ I have no financial connection to Khee-Kha Art Products, I did however introduce the owner, Lars Opland to the owner of the Widgeon and convince him to do the conversion ]]

    Time for some interior photos.
    Due to the unique nature of the USCG J4F-1 I’m going to treat it separately.

    On to the USCG J4F-1.
    Most of the cockpit was the same, with only minor differences.
    The cabin however was quite different.
    Also in this group is a detailed photo of the top of a J4F-1 showing some of the topside differences.

    On to some of the exterior details on both original G-44/J4F-2 and J4F-1.
    One thing most modelers get wrong on the USCG J4F-1 is the antenna rig, it’s complex and very hard to see in most photos, so I used one good overhead view & a little magic (Windows Paint) and tried to make it clearer.
    The antenna on the G-44 and J4F-2 was much simpler and is illustrated again with Paint in 2 photos of Widgeons that had or still have the basic setup.
    Those are up first.

    Finally some details regarding the main gear and tip floats.
    If anyone needs anymore info or photos let me know.
