Default Ugly...Uglier...Ugliest...You Decide.....

Thanks to a silent longtime lurker on this forum, you know who you are, I was able to obtain my long sought after Nasa Super Guppy to complete my ugliest model contest. A big shout out and thanks to him!

Here you go!

Congrats! Pays to be patient, which is something I definitely lack. I don't think the Dream Lifter is all that unattractive, though.

The LCF is certainly the ugliest.

The belugas (regular or XL) are pretty nice aircrafts

I remember the Super Guppy flying over our house, heading to Finkenwerder back in the day. Impresive sight in the sky and impressive sound aswell.

Ugliest: the 'Dreamlifter'. An icon of aviation made ugly, to be precise.

"Manufacturer" of the Super Guppy was Aero Spacelines, by the way - not NASA.

Back when I was a kid I watched this movie called 'strange planes' and I thought the guppy looked scary for some reason, so I'll have to go with that...

I also find the Dreamlifter the ugliest of the three, it has that distinctive 'hunchback' and only the front nose section reminds me of the Boeing 747

The Super Guppy by the way i find a very cool aircraft, unique is the word i'm looking for and the Beluga reminds me of a lady that is a bit over weight but still has a pretty face to look at..

The dream-lifter looks like if the 747 and A380 had offspring together.
it looks ok, but it just doesn't look right!

I really tried. I can't choose. I also have 3 of them in my collection (I have the Super Guppy Airlink Version). I guess ugliness in the eyes of the beholder.

PS I won't mind an interactive Super Guppy and an interactive Ann-225- Hello Herpa.

With full respect to crownvic and not highjacking this thread-


Though never built, what do you think of the attached photo?

Please do not post any photos of that yuck..

The B747-400 LCF Dreamlifter is my favorite, but the Airbus Beluga would certainly be the ugliest I guess, funny topic tho, but there you go
Dreamlifters also are known as The Flying Hotdog
