Don't know what that is, but if that is not the ugliest thing ever built I don't want to see what is  :o

It's not that ugly, but certainly very small  ;)

I still do not know what it is... :(
Radoye with the Yak-17 guides my a bit,  ;)

Yep, it's a taildragger design and that's what gives away the plane.
Note the flame deflector attached to the tail wheel strut lol - this plane acts like a tail wheel lighter ]clown[
Such crazy designs are either french or italian and this one is the latter.

Cheers!

Not quite. It's a taildragger and the engine exhaust exits underneath the middle of the fuselage, that much for the similarities.
This plane in question however has swept wings and differs quite a lot in design, even though it's based on a 1939 plane...

I think I've seen something similar on an Italian plane... Would have to do some research to remember which one exactly.
