Borrowing a thread from RCU.

What's your favourite warbird, doesn't have to be heavy iron, could be a stringbag or a jet. Let's keep the choices down to 3.

1) Hawker Typhoon
2) Hawker Tempest II
3) deHavilland Mosquito

Man, I hate picking favourites, there are so many good aircraft and you always have to compare apples to oranges....

My pick (with right reserved to change my mind)

MAAC# 12719

B25, B17 and A10

Some day I want to build a large scale B25 for twin gas engines (like the Ziroli model) and an A10 for twin turbines, like twin 12 pounders. The B17 I like because of its shape.
Andrew Coholic -MAAC #26287L

1/2A to giant scale, IMAC, SAM, R/C sport, turbine jets, Heli's...
if its got a wing or two and an engine - I like it!
