Default Strangest Looking Airplanes

What do you think is the strangest looking airplane? Prefably a real full sized airplane.

Default Strangest Looking Airplanes

This is a model I made of a full size seaplane from 1918. It is a Hanza Brandenburg W-29. I still need to put the guns on it. It is strange looking.
Is the rudder on the bottom to avoid shooting it off with the rear facing gun or is it down there to put it in the propwash thus giving it more authority and avoiding the need for a water rudder?

Transavia PL-12.


Stipa-Caproni (the winged beer keg)


McDonnell XF-85 - apparently the American version of the above.
(same idea w/ More Power.)


I don't think we'll be seeing any of these in ARF form anytime soon
