    What do you think are the nicest looking aircraft of WW2, including prototypes? Here are a few:

    A memory aid was used that paid tribute to the streamlined appearance of the Ki-46: “ DINAH with the fine linah“.

    Nice stuff Wildcat! I'd have to disagree with the Boomerang being considered a "Purty Aircraft." The Boomerang, well it looks like a Boomerang!

    I guess my picks are at least today.

    1st - B-29
    Spitfire
    P-51
    Tiger Cat
    Mossie

    Planes like the P-38, F4U, Catalina, Fw-190 were cool in their own right but not so much purty.
