    As a private pilot I'd like to see more of the types of aircraft I've flown, such as the Piper Tomahawk, etc... That's why I voted for late civil, assuming that means basically post-WW2.

    It's amazing how getting to know a plane can make you like it. I voted for WWII and they are truly my favorites. I have to admit though that I used to think that C-172's were kind of homely but since I've learned to fly I find them quite beautiful in their own right.

    For me, the most interesting periods to model are the between-war periods, especially the golden age aircraft of the transition period from biplanes to monoplanes, with the early jet aircraft as a very close second. If the question was what was my single favorite airplane to model, I would have to go with the Skyray....which I have yet to find in paper medium. The Cutlass would come in closely in second place in my hit parade.

    Pilot's choice...

    I voted for late-civil aircraft. No matter how cool the other types are (and they are ALL cool!), you never forget the one that carried you through your first solo. For me that was C-152 N46889; I'm still looking for a 152 model that I can re-color to match her...

    For aircraft, I'm stickly interested in amphibious, floatplanes, hovercraft, and ekranoplans.

    Oh but then.... I could get interested in modeling HPVs(human powered vehicals).

    Fiddlersgreen has a simple model of a 152 that you could start on... I would not bet on its accuracy to scale:

    The Cold Warriors will always be my favourites. They looked like a jet should look like.

    Its called "the gull 3" and was made here in denmark,around 1915-17
    and is located at "The Danish Tecnical Museum"
    You should see this for real,the craftmanship on the hull lookes like something coming from chippendale.
    See new tread for more pics. on reference shelf.
