    I'll start by adding one wich I think truly deserved its name, the big and beautiful "Cadillac of the sky" 8) :

    As far as looks go, there's only one thing that bothers me about the Mossie: the tail fin. It looks a little odd.

    Different to what most people would put but good choice. It should have been given Merlins though

    I think any non Griffon Engined Spitfire and any Mosquito are a sight to behold, and I think the Lanc is not bad looking either.

    Not exactly WW2-operational, but Hornet, without doubt. Fastest, too (now watch the fur fly!)

    Oh, and just to add a safety-net, I'd better amend that to include 'propeller(s)'!
