I quit after 10 or so.
It would be difficult without obvious answers.

42. I'm in trouble once they get away from the American, British, or German stuff.

The difficulty increases as the test progresses.

There were some serious oddballs in there, later on. I was surprised how many had the same look as other, more famous aircraft by the same manufacturer, or even by the same nationality.

Some of the pics were of captured enemy craft with Allied markings.

47.

I suspect some photoshop on the markings, no CW-21s were used in Europe, so how did they find one with German markings? The Dutch ones were used in Indonesia.

The quiz doesn't stipulate Europe

Didn't say it did, and the quiz quite properly asked about Japanese aircraft. I just asked how a CW-21 could end up with German markings.

I don't think any tigercats saw service during the War either.

According to wiki, with no citations, Tigercats were in USMC service in WW2, but never in combat.

I stepped back through to the CW-21. I couldn't decipher bnb the markings, but the picture looks created, almost like something from Flight Simulator.

39, totally appropriate.
