Proof that not all French aircraft are ugly.

116 Japanese Bomber = Kawasaki Ki-48 (Lily)

118 Parasol Monoplane = Westland Wizard - I have a combat flight sim model of this thing but with no guns.

119 Biplane = Gloster Gnatsnapper - note the out of sequence serial.

120 Biplane I-BAGC = Macchi M.16 (2 seater was the M.20) - 'Aermacchi - from Nieuports to AMX' helped here.

122 Biplane = Westland Wagtail (drawings @ http://members.rogers.com/ww1aircraftdrawings/)

123 Renard R.34 (Belgian) There's something about Belgian aircraft that I can't put my finger on.

124 Fairey Spearfish (to replace the Barracuda)
Fairey went from ugly to uglier.

and a scout to find...



And very well done... HAve to look for more if you keep this up!

I keep an archive (mostly on CD now - 6+ CD's worth) of every obscure airplane I can find - this thread has actually filled a few holes. Funny how hard it is to find a good shot of a Macchi M.16 when you're looking for one. Anyone know of any drawings of it?
I found a Donryu mis-filed in with the Hiryu's when I was looking for the Lily.

(Waterman was American - didn't he also built the Aerobile?)

And here is something Japanese (note the triple cockpit - definite British influence there)

That would be the one - horrible name for an airplane. No wonder he didn't manage to convince anyone about the idea.

Interesting pusher concept...
