Hi!
I have started a thread at Netwings dedicated to less known fighterplanes
of WWII that operated and saw action.
Im very interested of these planes, and just thought of charing
some info about them,because I know many aren´t so familiar with them.
I will update this thread continiusly with more fighters,
(I dont have the time to do them all at ones)
and hope you will enjoy it.

I wouldn't worry about it, the link works.

That is a neat little plane. I take it the Triangle markings on the wings are Netherlands?

Curtiss-Wright CW 21B. I had never even heard of this Aircraft.

The I.M.A.M. Ro.57, Sort of reminds me of an Italian Hs 129

That Polikarpov I-17 looks interesting. Seems like it would be a good low alt, low speed dogfighter, with the exception of being a big target. Some cool planes in that thread though.

Gib is doing the CW-21B external for PF and Jeronimo is doing the cockpit for it.

The CW-21 looks very much like the Fokker 21 featured in last month's Aviation History. I may be wrong, but I'll check it out when I get home.
