Yes I would be interested Ground zero, I love a bit of virtual plane spotting.

Only one correct guess so far, pic 2 is indeed a Hawker Typhoon.

Now how did you find those? Well done!
Although I'm letting you off a bit as 'British B-37' is remarkably vague


Can anyone be a bit more specific?

The rest of them (despite the absence of manufacturers) are correct and before I get complaints the Liberator was a special version which married the wings, tail etc to a transport fuselage, in the same way that the Lancaster became the York.


Is anyones interest aroused enough to carry on with this sort of thing?thousands of pics available if you want to.

Blackburn, Firebrand

feel better?


Army/Coast Guard/Lockheed brat, remember?


I was drawing planes while most drew stick figures and houses, hehe...

I actually happen to have an affinity for just about any plane with a bubble canopy, as I used to draw them all the time.

EDIT: I'll stay out and let others play if you want, hehe...

I'm pretty good with the designation numbers, but I don't know jack about specifics, etc. I'll leave things like torque, armament, thrust to weight ratios, etc. to the experts

I love miltary thingy's although I was 0 fer the lot
Please do keep them rolling. Perhaps you can "drop" a few missles/bombs our way too


I have a few coffee table books up in the attic, but they are little use to me now since I can't either hold or turn the pages. Tanks, Planes, boats, you name it. Anyway keep up the good work!

Yes Gazrock, 'Firebrand' is a lovely name isn't it? I'm pretty much like you in respect of I'll ID almost anything that flies but when it comes down to a lot of the technical jargon I find it a bit of a yawn, each to their own.

Anyways heres to round 2.

I'm trying to keep to types produced by the 'mainstream' nations in the interest of fairness so you will see much from the USA, UK Europe etc but little, if anything, from Argentina, Iran etc. At the same time I will try to make them fairly obscure as a challenge, so no F-16's etc. Let me know if this is too restrictive for you.

On we go; The last one is a real toughie, or is it?

www.tadesigners.com...

This is a a forum for a mod for the game Total Annihilation, but we do alot of things on the side like "name that plane" or stuff like that...

The forum is a little dead right now since the game is ancient, nearly 8 years now...the mod is about 4 years now...

I can agree with Tupolev ANT-20.
The fourth is Lockheed Constellation (or Constitution ?) or something like this. The name starts with C.

Constellation, you are correct!
(dad's company, so you know I had to know that one, hehe....)
