The US exported the B-239 Buffalo to Finland in 1939, just before the Winter War between the Soviet Union and Finland. The Buffalo's maneuverability made it a hit with Finnish pilots. These aircraft gave the vastly outnumbered Finnish Air Forces a fighting chance against the Soviet Air Forces as the Winter War morphed into WWII. Finnish forces shot down eight Soviet planes for every one they lost; these air victories helped the Finns maintain their independence after the end of WWII. This limited edition kit combo features decals for three top Finnish pilots.
