    It's great to see these all together. My favorites remain the twin engined Ju-87 and Battle. Both look like deadly ground attackers to me.

    Added the Ju-87B float plane (never built IIRC) - the 7 pcs aboard of Kriegsmarine ships might have knocked out one of RN ships before main guns engagement in the Battle of the Denmark Strait (Prinz Eugen detected RN ships 25 min before 1st shells were fired).

    Designers of the time have done many splendid jobs.
    I'm just using hindsight - a luxury not available for them :)

    Web album updated:
    The Fairey Fulmar as it would've looked if FAA decided to go for it - in twin engined shape. Radiators atop of nacelles, armament installed in hull. Wing folding achieved further outboard. Fillets added to vertical horizontal fins.
    The second pic - comparison vs. dH Hornet, than vs. dH Mosquito.

    The pics posted here are smaller than at the web album because of new rules for posting the ones.

    These following ones are ready:
    Fairey Battle in twin configuration, plus, compared with Mosquito. Didn't bother drawing the fin extensions.

    Not the turkey any more - Ba.88 with DB-601/605 engines would've looked like this; note the cut front fuselage:

    Not really an USN Mosquito, but perhaps an 'US Navy's Pe-2': the TBF with 2 Allisons.

    Nice wish I could do that. I have played around with a couple of drawing programmes but with horrible results.

    Almost like another nice plane, the Ki-84 Hayate.
