    Blazer, since we're on the subject of classic WWII planes, this beauty has always been my favorite. You can imagine my shock and awe when I walked into a room at the Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C., and one of these greeted me as it hung from the ceiling. There are only two of them left.

    The Macchi 202 Folgore (Thunderbolt). I love the looks, and it was a very good airplane, hampered only by it's lack of armamant. I have a plastic model waiting to be built.

    That is sweet. I'm a P-40B man myself. Got some good pics of an "E" on the Air and Space museum a long time ago. I was going to build an RC but just don't have the time or room where I live now. ) =

    I like all of the WWII airplanes. Unbeilevible to me how many they built in such a short time.

    Someday I'm going to hop in a plane and learn to fly or die trying.
    (don't worry I'll do it in a crop duster)
