Strictly speaking the Sea Fury was not a WWII aircraft, only entering service in 1947, so Ill grant you the Spit as the most attractive WWII bird.  Of course that's really only splitting hairs.  LOL

I agree with you about the Catalina, a beautiful aircraft for sure.  As for Daks, there was one of these on the flight-line of VC-851 when I was on that squadron that had its nose replaced by the radome from a de Havilland Sea Venom as a former training aircraft.  I got so used to that aircraft that ever since normal DC-3s look snub-nosed to me.   ::)

I reckon that the P40s were good looking too.  Not equal to the Japanese Zeros but they are revered old airplanes that Chenault made good use of.
