Because "best looking" is so dependent on personal preference, there is no overall best looking aircraft that everybody would agree on. But the P-40 is for sure nice looking for an early warbird. Few would call it ugly. However most could call the Beaufighter ugly, as it has a face only a mother Beaufighter could love.

It was called the Kikka. (Orange Blossom}.

It looked similar to the 262 but was smaller and lighter.

But about the Spitfire IX, I prefer the earlier models over it, like the Mk V, because of the firepower; The Spit IX has two .303s and Hispano's (at least on the IXe), while the others have anything from 4 .303s + Cannons to 4 Cannons (forgot the weapon name).

Well, I've always loved the look of the Mig 3. The way the pilot is almost sitting in the tailplane. The look of a Dukes of Hazard type 70s sports car with an unnecessarily long hood.

Sure it flies like a brick, but I'm so used to flying it online now that I'm over the 50% kill/death ratio. No one ever seems to talk about it on the forums, does it really suck that much?

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b397/Nick_Toznost/MiG-3-Right-Side.jpg

Actually.....then again, my favourite plane look of all time has to be the Boulton Paul Defiant. Hopefully modelled in BoB.
Looks great, nice UK bomber style turret. Useless in combat. Forward firing guns are useful in aerial warfare (take note Boulton Paul Co).

http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b397/Nick_Toznost/JSJ_Boulton_Paul_Defiant_I.jpg

One other OT non WW2 amendment.......The prettiest aircraft that ever flew.
British V bombers rock.

True, I remember Crimson Skies, but at least the Mig 3 is based on a real aircraft. I do fly the P40 a lot when it's available online, but to quote Baron Underpants, it really looks like the nose is severely allergically swollen.

Incidentally I loved Feathered IV's comment about the dihedral being like a butterfly at rest. Such a beautifully oriental way of putting it.

Hmm, "Beau"fighter as in the French word for aesthetically pleasing. They really tried to give it a good start in life, but it was all a lie. Nothing could prepare it for the playground taunts ahead....
