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.

Ah well each to their own :lol: I love the old Boomer, I reakon it has that classic look of a late 1930's radial engined fighter plane. Ya just gotta love it!
