A good description of a Whitley, 'Nicely Ugly'.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

If you repainted the blue one (DC3 wings) in standard Luftwaffe camouflage I reckon you could fool some people into thinking it was an RW radial engine version of the He-111.  ;)


From a Do 217 perhaps ?

There was one in China, an He 111 A-0 that was re-engined with Wright Cyclones in 1943.  :thumbsup:

The bright blue colour was what-if anyway, I think ;D

As an aside Jon do you know what those markings are ?

The Manchukuo AF used characters on the fuselage, but then roundels on the wings. So I don't think it's one of their's ?

Cheers Jon. I thought it might have been in civil (or what passed for it) use.
