I don't know what it is but I just find the Dora a really ugly airplane. It looks like somebody put a 190 on the rack and stretched it. Can't wait for the 109 a much more aesthetically pleasing aircraft.

BF109 and the Spitfire are the ugliest planes in my opinion. Love the look of the Dora, Mustang, and P47 but we all have our favorites.

Love the look of the 109 - Mustang not so much.

Didn´t like the Dora in the beginning either but meanwhile I think it´s a nice plane.

Hopefully the 1200 that were sent to Russia from the UK during WWII didn't upset you too much

But seriously.. Really...? ugly? Yeah the elliptical wing is / was the main aesthetic - but she still has nice curving lines over the fuselage as well - But it's you're opinion, and that's fine. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I guess.

S

EDIT - I also have never heard anyone (ever) describe the Spit as ugly before? ...is the only reason for posting - but as said above, it's all subjective.

For me Spit is also meh at best as far as easthetics go. I guess it may be a common view among those who, like me, don't fancy vintage curves in general

Hi Bucic,

I'm not a big fan of kitsch design either - Some Harleys are nice, but... I'm with you.

As you'll know I'm sure, the Supermarine Spitfire was developed from a 'stable' where initially, air speed record breaking was their only goal - and then further basic design development for the needs of the time. I think it's safe to say - the Spit's shape is purely a product of function, alone.

However, you are more than welcome to not like it I don't agree but, I will defend you're right not to like it... etc..

It just surprised me to here someone describe it as ugly that's all.

Anyway someone should post a screen-shot before this gets moved to chit chat - I would but not on main machine.
