BREWSTER F2A-2 "Buffalo'' - Modelik 1:33

Hello friends!
In another post of mine I mentioned that Santa brought me three models. I'll start with the first one. This is the American fighter from the beginning of the second world war BREWSTER F2A-2 ''Buffalo''. I chose it because for a long time I wanted to make something flying and not so difficult. If I hadn't had to correct a few details, I would even call it an easy model. But that's all over now, and now I'll show you what we've achieved so far.

One of my favorite airplanes in spite of its reputation.

Excellent work on this aircraft of Fighting Squadron 2 ("Flying Chiefs" because most of the pilots were enlisted chief petty officers, rather than commissioned officers), which flew from the USS Lexington (CV-2) from November 1940 until January 1942.

Don, it's true that this plane doesn't have a very good reputation but I like its silhouette.. As far as I know the Finns used it successfully.
I'm continuing with little progress on the build.

Today I managed to finish the model. In my opinion, as I expected, it turned out to be a nice airplane.
And now the pictures follow.

Neat and clean and I LOVE those colors. The yellow and green really set it off.


Well done!
