    Ok, I probably won't remember them all, and I may omit a few on purpose that I think a majority of people would not call ugly.

    I went over the list twice, couldn't find any I consider as ugly. Till I remembered what the Skua looked like.

    Probably generations of Skuas made sure every dump they took, was over a Royal Navy ship, in retaliation for having that aircraft carry their name.

    Naw, that Buffalo.. now there was an ugly craft. If you wanted goofy looking, then the P-35 is your winner!

    The Bloch 150 series just look like they were designed to win a fight by sheer force of ugliness.

    Voted for the Fiat G. 50 with the way the engine is "stuck" on it looks like something from Junk yard wars.

    Considering where you live, I can appreciate that! I also consider it to be one of the uglier ones. Now that Hawk 75 on your signature, that is a beauty.

    The Blackburn Skua got my vote. It was ugly, but it had a lot of firsts. First to sink a German warship (Koninsberg), first to shoot down a German plane (a seaplane).

    Since the Roc didn't make the list, had to vote for the Skua. Pretty much anything Blackburn made during WWII was ugly as hell, IMO.

    The Roc, the Skua, the Firebrand, and the B-20 just to name a few.

    I rather like the Firebrand, it has a certain "air" about it. Like a 12lb hammer.

    "Ugly fighter" to me is an oxymoron.

    Though most of the French fighters weren't very attractive.

    The IAR 80 just doesn't look right. More like a '30s race plane than a fighter. A lot of U.S. XP aircraft that were designed and flown before the war would also get my vote.

    Please be honest Shvak and Adler, D520 was pleasant. Others French planes were, hummm, between awfull and very ugly (yes, especialy bombers).
    Was not far from voting Ms406 before seeing my real nightmare on the list : the Skua.
    Voted Skua.
