You are most likely correct - I forgot (or possibly didn't know...) that the Finnish armed forces used the Swastika markings

It is. Other than the blue swastikas, the B-239 designation gives it away. They eventually received 44 of them, fighting first against the Russians and then the Germans, with only 8 surviving the war. They were credited with 496 kills against 19 combat losses, a 26 to 1 kill ratio!
I've always loved the Finnish colours, the sombre black and green camo set off by the pale blue belly and bright yellow wingtips and fuselage band. This one appears to be in the winter camo, though. It'll still be on my wish list, though!

Neat! Always good to see something new from AH. Anyone know how long it usually is before release when the "Coming Soon" alert is posted?

The Buffalo,at least the USN F2A, is one of my favourite aircraft and thus will purchase same as soon as the kit hits the market.

Ummm....Jason, you listening?

Yes, also one of my faves. I have a Modelik kit I'm not sure I will bother ever building, but it would be nice to have one with the Halinski attention to detail, even if it is Finnish.
