    F4U-1A (due to the three-tone paint scheme :) )
    F4U-1D (due to having a three-bladed prop)
    F4U-4/-4B (Due to being in WWII and doing lots of ground attack)
    F4U-2 (night fighter)
    F4U-1 (fighter, but the canopy takes away from its beauty somewhat)

    Other than Corsairs everything I like is about the same - SBD, TBF/TBM, P-61, Spitfire, Typhoon, Beaufighter, Yak-3, Zero, Val, Kate, and a bunch of others.

    yeah, but it's ok to be obsessed with the lanc, it's a great plane and worthy of an obsession, i mean you don't see a B-17 carrying a tallboy to almost any part of germany, do you?

    Fair enough :D i just wondered if there was any reason thats all - i'm a fan of Japanese aircraft myself - i just like the way they are designed - sleek and noble looking, i suppose i like them so much because it reflects their beautiful culture

    I've just thought about the Junkers Ju88: nightfighter...I havent seen it mentioned and yes I am aware it was a kraut machine...i still feel it is worthy of a mention...It was an excellent all rounder i think as a bomber and as a fighter......

    I have never been a fan of German aircraft - i think they look evil...but credit where its due - it was a tough customer and a good plane (for a german effort) ;)
