Does anyone remember Top Trumps?
It was a card game where you'd try to beat the other players card by bettering their stats.

I reckon a WWII planes Top Trumps would sell well among some of the board members here...

Thats odd, I half expected the description to read:

Under the threat of war
The D.520 resulted from a 1937 specification designed to minimize the pilot's forward visibility, especially when on the ground and landing. This was accomplished by placing the cockpit as far aft as possible, to result in an extremely long nose.
In the same manner, the specification provided for ease of pilot ingress and egress, accomplished by not placing the wings below the cockpit.



Wow, deadly 7.5mm "cannons." Well, it was a nice thought at least.

Overall, I love it! When will we see it in FB?

I had those same cards! I have sooooo much airplane stuff I gave them away to a student!
Do you remember where you got them?

No, sorry dugong, can't remember where I got them - however I can confirm I wasn't the student you gave your collection away to. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

They span WWI up to modern jets, I have about twenty WWII ones including Spitfire, Bf109, Yak-3, P51, B17, B24, B25, Ju87, I-153.
