    What WWII aircraft do you find curious, that is to say not necessarily beautiful or ugly, but ones that keep drawing your attention.

    A few examples for me would be:
    JU-188 (I am drawn especially to the cockpit),
    Bloem Voss P-170 (set back cockpit and wingtip engine mounting)
    ME321 Gigant (overall shape and front doors)
    J7W Shinden (overall style)

    Thank you for that picture! I was thinking of that aircraft also, but I couldn't remember the model number - also the german bomber with the extra engine (twin fuselage?).

    I agree with you about wanting to ride in some of these, although, for some of them I think I would take the ride with a parachute on my back and one hand on the escape hatch!

    Thanks Comiso90 and Flyboy2, that's it!

    I keep flipping pictures like these up on my computer screen so I can study them when I get put on "hold" on my phone at work.
