I like the lines on the original EDO OSE-1 prototype.

Maybe a SPA Panther with modified rudder and cowl, and an inline engine like Aeromomentum could fake one, though the Panther's wing mounts a bit far forward.

That's my pick for a single-seater scale "warbird"...even if it was never widely accepted into service. But to the original subject, a Dream Warbird, the PBY Catalina gets my vote.

Lol I think he meant that like the Catalina the HU – 16 WOULD BE your cabin on the lake.
And your cabin at the islands and your cabin in Antarctica and your fishing boat

CAC Boomerang. Considering how few were made there are a number flying and several more being rebuilt.

I have to vote for the radio, because only it can directly cause 100 Marines to be motivated all at once, it can cause a fairly spectacular F-4 Napalm strike, it can cause five or ten SEAL's to become rather rude, it can cause one very highly accurate .50 caliber bullet to exit the barrel of a Barrett rifle nobody knew was there a moment ago, and it can "bring Hellfire down from the heavens" (courtesy of a Predator drone armed with Hellfire missiles), all within about a five minute span.

Victor Bravo; as usual I'm standing on the table like Hawkeye singing " you're the tops; the tower of pizza"...lol
Pilot-34: I like "the cut of your jib". The versatility of our darling 'flying elephant' is beyond reproach...that is, except for those Cyclones leaving soot trails behind them on take-off that would make a Hercules jealous. (groan)

I’ve always had to wonder who is the maniac who looked at a warehouse full of machine guns and a Hercules and thought “ those two should go together nicely“
Somewhere in the museum of stars of agriculture there should be one of those because nothing in the world can plow a field in quite the same way!
