Here's a bunch of photos of my 24 inch span Brewster F2A-3 Buffalo that I built for the "Battle of Midway" event we held at the MAYFLY this year. My F2A-3 is in Capt. Humberd's markings. In spite of being outnumbered by over ten to one, he shot down 2 aircraft and had a probable with this aircraft.

Here I am holding my F2A-3. I had a fresh motor set aside for the "Battle of Midway" event, and then somehow got it swapped for an almost completely severed old motor. I now throw those old motors away! It still lasted two rounds before breaking while winding for the third round.
Here's the instrument panel - It's COMPLETELY accurate right down to the last dial!
