OK, here’s something I’ve been musing on for a while….

What would be a good candidate for a single-engine scale replica WWII warbird with two real seats?

Let’s set aside conversions of single-seat fighters to two-seaters, the usual two-seat basic or advanced trainers, and the well-known liaison aircraft.

What would be a good candidate for a full-size or reduced-scale replica *combat* aircraft of WWII?

Here are a few off the top of my head….

Commonwealth Wirraway

Tachikawa Ki-36

Vickers Wellesley

Vought Kingfisher

Of course, the retractable gear ones are problematic. Any more ideas? Bonus points if you include a period photo in your post.
