Those were my top three choices, in order. Of course I may be biased as my dad was a crewman on an 8th Air Force B-17, one of the first models I did with my dad was of a Mosquito, and my father-in-law was a crewman on a B-25 in North Africa and in CBI.

I've had the pleasure of flying on a B-17 & a B-25 so I had to pick them.

My wife's uncle was a B-17 crewman, not sure what position he filled. Only know once he got my FiL a ride in one when they met in England. My FiL was a combat engineer.

The Caproni CA-3, largely because my grandfather flew it with LaGuardia's squadron posted to Foggia.
