US Navy

Brewster F2-A Buffalo

The Brewster F2-A Buffalo was one of the first US monoplane fighter aircraft and came with an arrestor hook and other modifications for use aboard aircraft carriers. Designed and built by the Brewster Aeronautical Corporation, the F2-A took its first flight in December 1937 and came into service in April 1939. Of the 509 built during its 1938-1941 manufacturing period, many of the aircraft were taken and operated by the Finnish Air Force as well.

The first unit to be equipped with the F2A-1 was VF-3, assigned to USS Saratoga air group, which took 10 aircraft. Unfortunately, with huge advances in fighter aircraft design during this period, the F2-A soon became obsolete as fighters and were transferred for use as trainers.

Our 1:72 scale model is a replica of one of the aircraft deployed aboard USS Saratoga and is decorated in a silver colour scheme with yellow upper wings, a white tail fin and with its identity 3-F-18 US Navy printed along the fuselage. The cockpit is moulded in green and the wings feature the US star in red, white and blue. The aircraft nose is red and we love the nose art - a hellcat carrying a lighted bomb!
