    Nah na na nah nah! Don't care, tis ugly, more so than an ugly duckling. Might have done some good service, with courageous pilots, but the designer needed his ar*e kicking. I mean, fat little belly, wing in the wrong place, undercart designed to tip over. Looks like it was designed by a committee, probably former politicians!

    That's running a close fourth or fifth. There are other, uglier British aircraft from the period. Skua, Roc, Botha, and probably more, but can't think of them at the moment.

    I love the 'name' made by the code and roundels, and if it was (almost) any other aircraft, I'd do it. But there's no way I can bring myself to build something that has less visual appeal than a Trabant! I'd even find football more interesting! The bl**dy thing looks like that awful 1970's Jaguar, the XJS(?), a collection of afterthoughts, all stuck together - maybe that's what inspired the French to design and build the 2CV?
    I can see the committee now:-
    Fred "So, who's finished drawing the fuselage?"
    Bill "Jim's got a bit done, and George has done another bit."
    Fred "OK, stick them together and that's that bit done. What about a wing?"
    Jim "There's one left over from last months committee meeting."
    Fred "That'll do."
    George "Where we going to put the wheels then?"
    All "Oh, b*ll*cks!"
    "Hang on" piped up Moira "There's a couple of golf carts out back."
    To be continued.......if there's any more mention of me doing THAT monstrosity!!

    I have heard some refer to the Wildcat as a barrel with an ironing board stuck through it. Tough and reliable, but not very comely. Still there is a part of me that likes that ugly little spud.

    I agree with Eric. Whilst she isn't great looking she certainly has an appeal because of her toughness and reliability. She would be a good build however if someone searched hard enough there is a probably another plane with a similar code somewhere.

    Nope. Avenger isn't particularly attractive either, though not as bad as the Wildcat, from the same stable. Only reason I chose an Avenger for the GB was because I knew there'd be a shed load of Corsairs, Hellcats and so on, and I wanted something a bit different.
    I was going to do another ugly aircraft, but couldn't get the kit in 1/48th anymore, just missed it by a week, all sold out. It was going to be a little diorama of a rescue at sea, featuring a Walrus......
