This is the Curtiss BT-32 Condor, a lovely 3D model by 'Veltro2K' and recently released by the DAT boys with Chinese and Peruvian skins. I've used the former as it's so very similar to NIVO Green and over-painted the roundels and rudder stripes and then added decals. I can remember making the Frog Whitley decades ago and using these colours. BTW, Blackburn was a natural choice for the manufacturer don't you think?

I like that, and being a regular visitor to Brid when I was younger, I approve.  The 26 Sqn elephant suits the portly lines of the Condor too.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

As a Blackburn, it's definitely on the "less unattractive" side of the ledger. ;)

Indeed, it's quite shapely for Blackburn  :angel:

I suppose that even Blackburn couldn't design EVERY aircraft to be ugly. This (and of course the Buccaneer) must be the attractive ones.
