This 1/48 scale plane was tons of fun to build. Tamiya was nice enough to include a masking sheet for the main canopy and floor canopy. I also enjoyed being able to pick this one up just about anywhere and not worry about it breaking, which is what I usually do during a build, over and over.... :)

Painting a car shell well is one thing, but working at that scale and getting it that neat is real skill. Very nice work.

Looks like an early Buffalo. Built by the Americans right here where I am in Queens New York. The British, Dutch, Belgian's used it in Europe with little to no success against the Nazi's. But the Finn's had tremendous success v.s. the Soviet fighters using this very aircraft. It was eventually replaced by the Grumman F4F Wildcat built in Bethpage New York. My dad talks about his uncles and aunts that worked the factories that built these very aircraft. You have done a beautiful job with this one.

Thanks guys! @Dephcon5....Thanks so much for all the history. Very cool that you had direct relations to this very plane. I went with the Netherlands East Indies Army Air Corps version. This kit is cool because it comes with 3 different decal options including the US Navy and RAF versions.
