    A Lawrence three cylinder. That was a great little airplane. It would have been fun to build and to fly one of them.

    Actually, I think that his partner, Frank Tallman, did the stunt flying on IAMMMMW.

    I'm trying to convince the wife that a 336 is a good idea. (I'm trying to convince myself a 336 is a good idea....)

    The O-2 is one of the cheapest ways into the Warbird world, and is still a practical plane.

    I have a solid aluminum model of the DH.88 somebody carved out of an aluminum billet. Have one of the P-38, too, made the same way. Must have been a chore to make. Found both in small shops in the UK.

    WOW! The relative scale between the fuselage/floats and the engine/nacelles is striking!
    The design gives an overall impression of low aerodynamic efficiency.....

    Hard to see in that image, but the S.55 was a push me- pull you aircraft like the Do.335. Pushers usually were much higher drag than equivalent tractor aircraft, Do.335 excepted.

    Apples & oranges perhaps, but would that also hold true for a more modern design such as the Cessna 337?

    DO-335, I read that it was almost as fast as a P-51 with just the rear engine running. More efficient prop stream.

    What were the vertical cacti shaped openings up front?

    Anchor lines/mooring?
