The Buffalo's last stand: F2A-3s at the Battle of Midway
The November 2009 issue of FineScale Modeler includes Adding Detail, a special supplement with tips on detailing to improve your models. Bart Cusumano converts a Tamiya's 1/48 scale F2A-2 kit into a Marine Corps fighter in this special section. Here is a little history of Brewster's Buffalo and a gallery of the fighter in action. The following essay and images can only be found on FineScale.com.
This image taken in August 1942 shows a Brewster F2A-3 fighter, piloted by Lieutenant Commander Joseph C. Clifton, in flight.
