Not necessarily a whiff, more like a "never was", but one for Tophe.

Bizarrely, because it ticks none of my usual aesthetics boxes, that Hanriot H.110 looks quite good :thumbsup:

... Possibly because it looks so plausible? :unsure:

Not sure if I'm missing the point ?, but it did fly

Someone, probably Unicraft, does a kit of it

That's why I added the caveat at the top of the post:

I thought that was what you meant Scoot, but I wasn't sure about Old Wombat's comment

To be honest, I missed the "not a whif" part but my comment still stands, it still looks plausible as, if not a first-tier fighter, at least a second-tier scout/observer. ;)

Even without the national markings it screams FRENCH.

The Nausicaa Gunship reminds me (vaguely) of this plane. Just add twin booms and a tail and it's a ground attack/bomber version.

It looks like a 1920/30's Colonial Policing aircraft to me. Keeping all those Tuareg rebels down with mg's and light bombs. Did the Foreign Legion have an Air Branch ?  ;)

Yep, that'd work, too! :thumbsup:
