    I was just browsing through some old links and rediscovered this one
    http://www.fortunecity.com/tattooine/farmer/120/

    One guys opinion (not mine) of the ugliest looking aircraft made - some very successful, others not so. Anyone up for designing one of these like, say, the R-1?

    Nobi? Anybody? :twisted:

    Or perhaps a Farman Jabiru (the 3 engined one) - not only ugly but quite successful. One of the few passenger planes where you'd have to issue the chunder bags before the passengers embarked.

    BTW, a few have been made:
    the Goblin is at FG,
    there is a link to an I-16 here,
    Kancho has the Boomerang,
    and FG might have the Buffalo.

    Happy modeling!

    This might help too. :D

    Some of these have already hit the market - the Martin Kitten and Zubr come to mind as relatively recent releases.

    Actually, trully, the thought had crossed my mind, just because it looked so weird. But if I ever did model an R plane, it would probably a Stakken or Dornier. I picked up "The German Giants" through Abebooks last year and it is a top read. The definative R plane encyclopedia.
