Brewster Buffalo Mk. I
scale Brewster Buffalo is available online from
Here is Tamiya's 1/48 scale Brewster Buffalo.
This machine fought with 453 Sqn. RAAF in Malaya during the short
campaign of December 1941.
I used the Eduard etched metal set for the cockpit, and the sliding
section of the Falcon canopy. True Details wheels were also added.
Gunze paints were used on the upper surfaces. RAF Dark Earth and FS
34092 Medium Green wer the colours. Undersurfaces were painted in Tamiya
Sky Grey and Aeromaster Flat Black.
Decals were from Aeromaster for an aircraft flown by Sgt. Read. Both the
aircraft and the pilot were lost when the Buffalo rammed a Ki-43 Oscar
after running out of ammunition.
