Brewster Buffalo lower window photo - can anyone help?


Recommended Posts

Hi, as the title suggests Im looking for any photos of the underside windows of a Brewster Buffalo. Does anyone have anything in their collections?

 

Cheers

Scale Models February 1973 (?), the one with the Arthur Bentley Tempest feature - I am pretty sure this issue has a review of the Airfix kit, and the pics include one of the window. @Richard Humm has an index, or possibly/probaby  at Aeroflight.

Yes, but I'll have to scan later and send to you, can't upload pictures from my computer.  The ventral window (in the USN Erection & Maintenance Manual, the 'bomb-aiming window') is on all versions except the F2A-3 (where an extra fuel tank blocked the view).  The first variant. the F2A-1/Model 239, had the window but the carbon monoxide vents were located on the aft fuselage; for all subsequent variants, the vents were at the rear of the ventral window.  In Finnish service there was progressive plating over as spare parts were no readily available.
