    Mine is the Bf-109G-6. I love the beautiful yet menacing warbird look of it, kind of like an angel of death. Was it the best fighter of WW2? No, but for me my favorite.

    For me it is the MB-5 fast the pilots loved to fly it and the ground grew love to work on it.

    From the first day of the war until the last it was the best Allied Air superiority fighter and after the war it provided the backbone of many fledgling European air forces. It just looks so damn sexy too!

    Not sure exactly the Spitfire I have liked forever and the others more recently, probably due to the fact they are amoung the top fighters of the war and they are amoung the best looking too....
