    44, would have been a bit higher but I got cocky on a couple.
    The definition of stupid has got to be the belief that more guns will negate the bloodshed done with guns.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    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.

    22. I'd better stick to wooden boats.
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    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.
