The Spitfire has always been my favourite but this one is also up there, elegant and purposeful

Wonder why nobody ever offers any of the really elegant sailplanes for one of these threads?  There are some truly gorgeous gliders out there, both old and new.

 

On a related note, I did spot that many people's choice had a military slant.

Yes, interesting, but that probably reflects a general trend in modelling.   I do both, in fact my original choice here, a civil airliner,  was impressed into RAF service during WWII.

Edit: for anyone who has said DH Mosquito or Hornet in this thread, the Albatross pioneered the construction method.  More info here.
