Ugly is in the eye of the beholder.

I rather like the pregnant guppy look.

Now if you want really ugly, have look at some of C E Bowden's designs.
But I find I rather like those too - must be beyond help!

I think the Bomber is rather elegant looking. It's just that too many people feel the need to prove it by building them.

Now, a Scorpion with an upward looking windscreen...

Tom, from what I can see in the picture of the Albatross prototype, it does have a lovely wing. It is a model that may appeal to some, and not to others. As mentioned, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
