Show us your 2nd hand dream aircraft

A Bristol Beaufighter would do just nicely ! (or most of the things picture in this thread so far !!)

There have been some really awesome suggestion so far, but IanR's is among the best (although I am a little disappointed that Kaz has not jumped in with Auster seeing as I did not defend it in my first post, which I should have! poke_tongue_out.gif.5a7d1a1d57bd049bd5fb0f49bf1777a8.gif ). I always dreamed of owning a Beaufighter when I was younger. I figured it would be a far better way to destroy your eardrums than listening to load DUF DUF music.

 

There a true a beast that have that odd talent of appearing both brutish yet sport's car elegant all in one. 022_wink.gif.2137519eeebfc3acb3315da062b6b1c1.gif I'll take too, one for me and for Tomo to do formation work next to me in!!! (would need some good photo's of it in flight, so I think is reasonable.)

Thanks for puting up the photos !! Awesome. And I should say Auster as well as I am buying one 001_smile.gif.2cb759f06c4678ed4757932a99c02fa0.gif

Sopwith Camel

 

 

Yakovlev 9U

 

 

I-16 Rata

 

 

I'd love any of them, and apparently there is a Rotec radial-powered I-16 somewhere that somone has made for themselves. Speaking of which, the Camel had better be powered by the Rotex job as well... don't think the consumption of Castor oil would be particularly cost effective.

 

For the moment, I'm looking at a Preceptor N3 Pup; a half-VW powered, 3/4 size, single seat Piper J3.

Always wanted to fly a Spitfire, so I guess I wouldn't mind one of them sitting in the hangar... may as well get two of them too so Louis can fly in formation with me...

Tomo! How many times do I need to remind you that it should be a Hurricane?? poke_tongue_out.gif.5a7d1a1d57bd049bd5fb0f49bf1777a8.gif

But look how ugly the Hurricane is!!! ah_oh.gif.cb6948bbe4a506008010cb63d6bb3c47.gif

Watch it Tomo, thems fighting words!!!

 

The Spitfire might be pretty but it's just a glory grabber. Granted the Hurricane is not as pretty but ugly is harsh.

It doesn't look ugly! It looks Deadly.

I have always thought the Hurricane is so much more beautiful than the Spitfire... It is like a flying Battleaxe....Mean and ready to rumble...

Right click on the photo you want, click properties, copy the URL, then when making a post, click on the little tree above (images), then paste the URL into the parenthisis!

Does that help?typing.gif.6480b8333d5a827991c46cf7c4016332.gif

I was in the UK in 1979 and had the opportunity to access this aicraft

 

It is a Spitfire Mk1 in original condition and saw service during the BoB

 

I was allowed to sit in the cockpit, close the hood, lower the seat and have the flight of my life (in my mind)

To tell the truth, if I had my druthers (old timers term) I would love to have four aicraft in my hangar

 

And in no particular order of merit, here they are

 

Mkix Spitfire

 

Mk11 Hurricane

 

Mosquito and

 

Lancaster

 

I would be in heaven.......

Can't see the Spitfire properly, there's a bloke standing in the bloody way, who's deserving of my pre-loved Gillette razor blades:chuffed:

Me-163_Spate2.jpg.5bae04b6c43fb033c41a2e35c33d8ae4.jpg 022_wink.gif.2137519eeebfc3acb3315da062b6b1c1.gif

 

I got to sit in an original Me163 when based at Point Cook many decades ago (that aircraft is now in the War Memorial Canberra). It was a very cool aircraft! I want one!
