Durafly Brewster F2A Buffalo


So there is little right now about the plane, but from the pic hints seems like its going to be a Brewster F2A Buffalo

Maybe a fixed gear or Belly lander. Once I get more info I will post here

Im also guessing its coming in 2 scheames as I dont see one with blue fuse and yellow wings.

Maybe a yellow and silver version and a all blue version

Apparently suspended OP aside, yep, it's 99,9% a Buffalo, latest indication being Stephen replied with a "soon" gif on Facebook when in the post that was about "sharing the fun" of the new Spitfire I commented I wanted to share the fun of the Durafly Buffalo.

Curious to see how many people will get it, given the bad rep the plane has. I most certainly will, one of my very favorite airframes looks-wise.

Even though I really don't care for belly landers, I will buy this one. It is nice to see something other than a Mustang, Corsair, or Spitfire being on the market. Maybe it wasn't a roaring success in it's indended purpose, but that doesn't mean it won't be great at beating up the airfield in miniature. Besides, it is great to see something new and different. Now we need a Vindicator or a Devastator!

Id be on this in a second, if I had a good place to fly belly-landers, but, alas . . .

Ssshhh, Buffalo thread, not Mikey thread!

One good thing about a Buffalo in a Finnish camo scheme will be the increased visibility compared to my current Wildcat. The light blue can be tricksy at times as I suspected and confirmed.

Yep, not a fan of yellow wings personally though. Of course, the Finnish camo can disappear against a forested backdrop if flying low enough...

My personal favorite for vizibility is invasion stripes. It may not be 100% historical, but bringing a plane back is more important than accuracy. At least it should be.

It just would not take must changes for that plane to be a cartoon plane...
