  1. Hi comrades! My next build is two Brewster Buffalos. In this thread it will be Finnish one. Famous "white seven" of the commander of 1/LeLV 24 in winter camouflage. Classic Airframe's kit is much more detailed than the old Tamiya's kit. I'll anyway add some scratch details to the cockpit and wheels-engine compartment. Model will be riveted. Only aftermarket is Montex Masks. Thanks for looking
  2. Hi comrades! Here is my yellow wing Buffalo. The build is here Main improvements: Scratch built half of cockpit floor, main undercarriage and aft-engine structure and wiring. Rivets. Some wiring on undercarriage legs and cockpit. Used aftermarket: Eduard's brass and canopy masks. Yellow-wings and Starfighter decals. Thanks to all the help I received for my questions! Hope, You enjoy Thanks for looking
  3. Hi comrades! This is my build of Tamiya Buffalo. Old kit, relatively simple. I will made my life more interesting by scratch detailing of the "empty" areas (wheels-motor compartment, cockpit, main u/c legs) and riveting. I'll use some aftermarket details and decals. The painting guide is for general idea only - my project is of different prototype (but the same unit/section). Also, to make the things even more interesting - in parallel I'll build the Classic Airframes counterpart - Brewster Type 239 of Finnish Air Force (will be in different thread)
  4. Hi comrades! My build of Classic Airframes kit is approaching the painting stage And now, my question is: how the prop was painted? In different references (mainly profiles, so I'm not really sure about them) the prop is painted different: solid black, black with thin white line, red and white, blue with white line... Which one is true for start of 1943 when BW-393 had temporary winter camouflage? Thanks a lot for help!
  5. Hi comrades! I am build now late variant (winter of 1943) and Classic Airframes instruction tells that on the overhauled Buffaloes cockpits were painted in "light grey" color instead of original natural aluminum and black. Is it true, and which "light grey" is proper? Thanks in advance
  6. Or at least his plane. Bought this a while ago: It contains Hasegawa plastic, canopy masks and decals for Finland’s two leading aces: I will be doing the plane of Hans Wind, partly because it has a neat wintry paintjob and partly because I will not need a cheater’s note every time I try to spell his name and partly because I already have a unopened box containing Juutilainen’s Bf109. Here are some sprue shots. Two of these - notice the strategically placed sink mark on the tyre (not the only example): Hopefully I’m
  7. Now that the thoroughly enjoyable Hawker GB is in the rear view mirror, I can clean off the bench and introduce you all to this barrel of fun. An OOB Airfix Buffalo, 453 Sq., RAAF Sembawang Singapore, December 1941...I will be using the kit decals for this one. It's too windy to prime tonight so I will have a breather and start her up tomorrow. Happy Easter folks! --John
  8. Here's the latest from the bench...Yes...it's like a little factory here on Paros! I present one of the Hasagawa Double Kit Brewster Buffalos B-239 flown by Sgt. Nils Katajainen, LeLv 24, March 1942, aka, 'Orange 1'. This was nice kit and all the parts fit together very well, including the cockpit floor! I had fun with this one (as usual) and it served as a good learning platform for not only my airbrushing but also chipping fluid. A quick rundown on that--after priming and building of the fuselage/wings, I masked off the sides with sticky tac and gave it a spray of Vallejo USAA
  9. Hi A pair of two (also) very old models (1/72): Matchbox Lysander Mk I and Airfix Brewster 239 Buffalo, both in Finish markings from 1942-3. Lysander of TLeLv16 LeR1 (whatever it means), Buffalo of Finish WWII ace - E.Luukkanen (54 victories), HLeLv 24. Both from very archive shelf - I made Lysander in 1977 (I know it almost exactly since from 1978 to 1992 I made all together only six models) and Buffalo was done even earlier (1975?) originaly in RAF Airfix in-box markings from Singapore, than it was reconstructed into Finish about 1993-4. In 1977 I was considering this Lysender
  10. Hello, I'm presenting my Brewster Buffalo in Dutch markings (Netherlands East Indies Army Air Corps, Batavia, Java Island, February 1942). I used old Tamiya kit, rescribing all the raised panel lines. I also used Eduard Zoom PE set and Montex canopy masks. The kit was painted using MrColor and Tamiya acrylics. This was my fastest model build ever - it took only two weeks, with majority of work done during weekends Hope you enjoy!
