Tamiya Brewster B-339 Buffalo

Day 249

Monday October 31, 2022

I have learned a lot about naval aviators who went missing in action in the Battle of Midway. A few years ago I met virtually Gerry Lawton who had composed over 400 biographies remembering the Fallen.

With his permission I thought it was important to share his research on a blog.

To learn more about Gerry Lawton and my interest in the Brewster Buffalo…

Missing in Action – Battle of Midway – VMF-221

Learning about the courage of these aviators was the main reason I was looking desperately to find Tamiya’s Brewster Buffalo. It was always listed as out of stock on several online hobby shops except on Plaza Japan.

Finding it on Sunward Hobbies was like finding the Holy Grail.
