Does anyone make a Brewster Buffalo kit or ARF?

I'd like to have one flying a little faster than going from plans.:)

Oh, and I will convert a gasser if I have to.

I think everyone who flew a Brewster Buffalo in real life was so traumitized that they couldn't wait to forget about it. Neat looking model though.

"I think everyone who flew a Brewster Buffalo in real life was so traumitized that they couldn't wait to forget about it."

Not true.

Check out the ones in the Finnish Air Force at:

And here's a tally of the air victories by Buffalos:

True, American and English pilots experiences were a lot worse than the Finns. But the Finns didn't have much choice, or time, since Stalin was trying to do to Finland, what Hitler did to Poland.:mad:

Oh, thanks E-nut, I think I will go with Bob Holman as his models look very scale. Thanks for the links.:D

While it may have been nice to fly, a lot of Aussies did not return when flying these no one wants me hand downs. Apply featured in the Worlds Worst Aircraft, lol.

Sorry to hear of the frightful time the Australians and others had in this old bird.:(

But I still want to build a model of one, in the FAF WWII scheme.:D
