Calling all modders! Throw away your sketchpads, drain your creative juices, and replace them with alcohol: it's time to design the ugliest airplane you can.

Gone are the days of structured competitions with defined roles and performance requirements. In this comp, build whatever type of aircraft you think you can mess up the most. Points will be awarded for clean models with uncomfortable proportions, impractical setups, and hideous designs.

Looking for inspiration? Try this screenshot from Decaff.

Models should be of HQPGAC quality or better. Complete aircraft should be submitted by June 30th.

YSFHQ is not responsible for injury or death due to alcohol-induced modeling, reactions to said modeling, or the results of said modeling.

Oh yeah! Feast thine eyes on my animation trainer model...
but seriously I'm looking forward to playing around with some new ideas for this one.

I guess ugly is in the eye of the beholder, but when I look back on this beast from 2015, I still recoil in horror and wonder "what was I thinking..?" Behold, the AV-52 Grizzly.

Somewhat serious question: Is it truly ugly if it can fly?

I think if it's truly ugly it'll always fly because the Earth is trying to get away from it.

I"m a bit late to the game, but I've got some fun design ideas planned out. Now I just need to see if my brain can communicate with my hands to make it without the disgust ruining this perfection.

I tried to go with something that could plausibly fly.

Unfashionably late, but fashionably ugly. Behold, the Triporter!
