Brewster model 339B/E Buffalo Mk.I

British Brewster Buffaloes are often connected with the Surrender of Malaya and Singapore. The Buffalo’s performance couldn’t exceed that of Japanese fighters, which supported the overwhelming attack on Singapore. Even though these machines are well known and our company has a Buffalo in its programme, we offer you a joint collaborative product of Sword and MPM Production in 1/72 scale. The kit contains a sprue with plastic parts, injected canopy and resin parts. Decals offer three attractive markings for British Buffaloes.
