Our F2A Buffalo Airplane is a replica scale model of the original aircraft manufactured by Brewster Aeronautical Corporation. The F2A Buffalo was one of the first monoplane aircraft with an arrestor hook for use on aircraft carriers. Twenty one F2As were flown during the Battle of Midway, but in comparison to the Mitsubishi Zero aircraft is was unstable and overweight. It quickly picked up the name of the flying coffin.
The Brewster F2A Buffalo model is an authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft that has been faithfully reproduced with kiln dried Philippine mahogany wood. Each model is meticulously carved, hand sanded and painted following exact blueprint details of the original aircraft. The result is a handsome, wood airplane sculpture to be admired and enjoyed. It also arrives with an attractive wood base for display.
