I want to say F4F-3 But the Three gun ports on the wing make me think; Early FM-2?
I just say that it's a damn beautiful thing.
I just want to say, tailgear with such narrow main gear = recipe for groundloop!
I had to go look it up. That is a General Motors FM-2 Wildcat (1943-1945) also known as "The Wilder Wildcat" or "Super wildcat" . Built specifically for use on "Jeep" carriers it was used in both the Atlantic and Pacific until the end of the war.--Ray
