    I would say the vickers wellesley is high up the list. The shape of it is just awful to look at. Another ugly plane is the Martin B-10/B-12. The Vickers Vincent is also a really ugly plane.

    Well, leaving out everything french (listing all those would take forever ;)) the ones high on my list would be the Wellington Mk.VI, Caproni Stipa, Ju287, Handley Page Hampden and Curtiss SO3C...

    The La-5FN and La-7.

    While of interesting look when seeing profiles, I was surprised to realize how ugly and dirty they look in photo.

    Like if they had been hastily produced. I have photos of brand new La-7s being delivered to squadrons and they already look worn out. Actually, they donĀ“t look that very new.

    The fuselages which should be clean and neat since we are talking about planes that just left the assembly lines, looks irregular, pretty much like if a group of messy children had glued the pieces.

    I'd nominate the Amiot 143 bomber, it looks like a flying greenhouse.

    You would have had a great view of the Bf109s and 110s coming to shoot you down, through all those windows!

    That is one ugly plane Dac. Continuing with French Bombers with a great view of incoming BF109's and 110's: Bloch MB210.

    Didn't Bloch change his name to Dassault after the war and produce some pretty decent aircraft?
