F2A-3 Buffalo

The next installment of the trio is the Buffalo. This “barrel with wings” was an enjoyable build. It could have easily taken only a few days to complete if it was a stand alone build. Hasegawa did a wonderful job with this kit. Decent detail and a great fit highlighted this build. I didn’t want to build a pre-war version so I used a set of Starfighter Decals depicting a late 1941 Buffalo from the USS Lexington. The decals were superb with great release and perfect thickness. This was an overall great build. It’s a smaller aircraft compared to it’s brethren, but I am thrilled with the outcome.
