Model 239 Buffalo "Taivaan Helmi over Finland" 1/48

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 figter type of the Finnish Air Force.

Our model of this version was originally produced for Classic Airframes, but as we have recently obtained production rights and moulding tools of this company, we are able to offer the Sky Pearl to the modeller now in Special Hobby range. One of the kit´s moulding tools was rather damaged by the wear and tear and we had to replace it by a new one. The model brings two machines in three camouflage options, one of them as flown by the most successful Finnish pilot Hans Wind.
