    Cool question, really...

    For me, it would be the Me262 A/1a

    Seems like we share alot of similarities:
    Faster than most contemporaries (I set track records in school)
    Doesn't travel long distances
    Not seen in large groups
    And the fights are short and brutal...lol

    Hmmm, I'd need a plane that:
    1. - is short and round.
    2. Belches smoke constantly.
    3. Always end up at the mechanic's.
    4. Crashes occassionally.
    5. Can take some punishment and still fly.
    6. But still end up being okay in the end, no matter what you throw at it.
    7. And hates getting painted.
    Any ideas, guys?

    BikerBabe; how about Kawasaki Hien Ki-61-II Otsu or Nakajima Shoki Ki-44-III?

    Both....
    had maintenance for combat pilot damage which they could take (Shoki pilots were sometimes instructed to come back with bullet holes or damage in/on them or face Court Martial for cowardice),
    didn't always have paint or shed their paint,
    had higher landing speeds than normal IJA A/C for landing causing some crashes,
    had engines smoked at higher power settings,
    when known flown by their pilots were to say dabour dieli to their planes.

    Sorry my Danish is phonetically spelt as I only know a few words but I once embarrisingly got cusine mixed up with another similar sounding 'c' word (which I hadn't learned in my own language at the time) and mistakenly thought I was saying 'Your my cousin!' to her and her brother in the road alongside the Kopenhaven Museum. No wonder she looked flushed/embarrised while chuckling.
    My step dad is Danish, but only been once to Kopenhaven; as well as to Aalaborg? southern very old historically important city, near to the Jutland coast by the big suspension bridge to Kopenhaven, around the by the Castle Museum, the Mermaid and the excellent Tivoli Gardens/Park in 1995.

    Myself, mmm....
    a Hawker Kestral
    Small in body,
    British,
    Short flying time - needs to work on stamina/cut down on smokes
    Stubborn - can put up a fight if it really needs be,
    Can VTOL - can be gaseous (hehe),
    Likes to think it punches above its weight.
