Special Hobby Aircraft 1/48 Buffalo Model 239 Taivaan Helmi over Finland Aircraft Kit
Finland was the only country where the Brewster model 239 fighter (known as the Buffalo in the US or UK) was liked by its crews. The reason might be that the Finnish operated the first lightweight version of the aircraft which was affectionally called by their pilots as the Taivaan Helmi (Sky Pear) or just simply as the Brewster. Until the arrival of the German Bf 109 fighters, the Brewsters had become the most successful fighter type of the Finnish Air Force.
Special Hobby's model of this version was originally produced for Classic Airframes. The model brings two machines in three camouflage options, one of them as flown by the most successful Finnish pilot Hans Wind.
