Hasegawa Brewster Model B-239 Buffalo of 1Lt Hans Wind in 1/72 Scale

Hans Wind was Finland’s second highest scoring ace with 75 victories.  39 of his victories were scored during the Continuation War flying the Brewster Buffalo.  While the Buffalo is generally considered to be an inferior type, the Finns used it with great effect against the Soviets, Wind’s victories included several lend-lease Hurricanes and Spitfires.  He was awarded the Mannerheim Cross twice.

The model depicts the B-239 of 1Lt Hans Wind of 1/LeLv 24 operating from Suulajarvi during the spring of 1943.
