    We're currently restoring the only exisiting Buffalo at the Nat'l Museum of Naval Aviation. It was recovered from a lake in Finaland and will retain it's Finnish markings when complete.

    Yes--that's the one. It's the only one of the type known to exist. The US Navy planes that were'nt shot out of the sky by the Japanese, ended up being recycled into Hellcats and Mustangs. The museum has naval aircraft from several different nations--not just US--although they predominate. If you ever find yourself along the central Gulf Coast--this museum is a "must see" on par with the the Smithsonian Air and Space museum....and it's FREE!

    Great job :D The Buffalo is one of my favorites and that is also my favorite scheme too.

    Of course after seeing your work I think building mine without the cockpit detail would be a sin.

    Beautiful work.

    Wow! The model turned out great! The gloss on the nose and the engine cowling is very impressing. I can't wait to see your next project! :D

    It did turn out really nice! I really liked the cowling. The nose be it a cowling or radome always seems to be a dead give away that the model is made out of paper; I'm glad to see that it can be hidden as well as managed to do it. I'll have to try that one of these days.

    Indeed, this is a very fine model! I admire the seamless joints in particular. I know I couldn't do it. Congratulations! - Leif
