Because of my fondness of PC2 and the gnome aeroplanes I’ve been keeping my eye out for books on early aircraft. And found this the 16th.
Since I noticed that the Mk VI Polecat is super similar looking to the Fokker Dr.I, I’ve been wondering if there were other strong similarities between other planes for purposes of filling in the non-combat specs of those planes.

As Classics of the Air isn’t an exhaustive resource on early military aircraft it wouldn’t be fair to assume all the craft in PC2 will find a twin in it. However, have found close twins and for my purposes they will probably suffice.
Either or both of the two-seaters, Pflanger-Skyratchet or Topcat, could be based on the Brequet 19 or the Albatross C.III.

The Smurfri-Lodestar bears a resemblance to the de Havilland Dragons and Dragon Rapides.
