Thanks!
"Surprisingly" the monoplane was the fastest one, like if wings would be dragging parts rather than a trophy for glory... :-\ :unsure: ;)

The bi-plane is a very good looker. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Thanks for this opinion, that surprises me a little: for my P-38 website, I had no room enough for presenting the three (mono/bi/tri-planes) together, so I kept only two: the most crazy (triplane), the most like actual P-38 (monoplane), I thought the biplane was not much interesting. Thanks to deny this positively! ;)

Here is another biplane Lightning with an external aspect of pirate flag, not seen from top but from font now:

Of course they are not "true killing pirats", they are just actors for Hollywood, with tomato ketchup instead of blood ;)

After the pirate flag seen from above then from front, here is the third dimension: from side/profile. This is more for logic than for aesthetics. The skull here is the fin with eyes as decoration. Crazy? Yes, thanks! ;D
