    The G55 was a inline engine replacing the radial giving the plane a nice long sleek silhouette. The other manufacturers were doing similar things and I still think it's funny that they all started looking like each other long nose similar looking spinners. I did find one that looked like a cross of the A5M and the A6M. The fuselage looked like the A6M even the canopy but the wings look more like the A5M to me interesting plane. One looked like a cross of typhoon and hurricane.

    My favs too the 202 was being replaced by the 205 and I read they upgraded 202 to 205 standards as the fire power of the 202 was proving insufficient to do enough damage. The G55 looks good and the re2003 and 2005. I'll build em one of these days
