Finnish Folly

Hot on the heels of its relatives is this delightful 1/144 Buffalo (actually a Brewster 339) in Finnish colours.  Once again this is a Japanese pre-painted 'Gashapon' kit, so my input was limited to assembly and additional decals.  I love it.

That is very nice indeed...I may just have to expand my Finnish air force unit at some point! Lovely addition to your aerodrome!

Nice plane model. Our local toyshop has a few of those gashopon kits, but mostly of jets by the look of it. Chance of a Me262 if you're lucky, though.

Looks great Tim, the Finns acquitted themselves fairly well with duff kit didn't they?

Cheers,

They certainly made a good showing with other people's cast offs.
