The mighty Brewster Buffalo. John Morgan is making a 1/4 scale foam one over on RCGroups.com.
The blue swastika is backwards for the Finnish air force. They also used Messerschmitt BF-109's.

At the field:

Good flying today, at 2:00 PM. It was beautiful, sunny and warm. No wind. Some slight thermals gently blew through and not one soul in sight! Perfect, the whole field to myself. This would be a Colorado Front Ranger's dream! :lol:

Aviation History and Trivia :

Yes, it is. It was one of the prototypes fielded by Republic Aircraft. The other prototype was the XP-72, which was the  Pratt and Whitney R-4360 powered P-47. It flew at 454 mph, so this one wasn't developed. It looks the right proportions to make a good flying RC model, though. It certainly would be something you don't see at the flying field every day. The tail looks like it's from a P-47, though.

It was determined, the other prototype from the same company was fast enough, so this one was never built. Just the full size mock-up for the wind tunnel tests was made. It would have had over 2300 horse power, so it would have been pretty fast.
This company usually used air cooled radial engines and they only used turbo-chargers instead of superchargers in some of their most famous aircraft.
      Here is a photo of a plastic model of one that might have been combat ready. The engine was in the nose, the exhaust came out the rear, through the turbo charger exhausts.
