As a more modern alternative to the Beaver the Murphy Moose looks quite similar, especially when fitted with a radial engine. The Moose has a single, front cockpit window, and a big cabin/cockpit window on each side. Finally, the vertical tail is curved only at the root of the leading edge.
The Russian single engine turboprop is similar in appearance to the TBM-700, but with a different engine cowling. All gears have a trailing link attachment, and the nose gear doors are small.
Myasishchev M-4/3M Molot
This heavy bomber can be easily recognised from other aircraft by its tandem main landing gear, with small wheels supporting the wingtips, and engines in the wing roots.
Myasishchev M-55 Geophysica
The M-55 is the twin engine version of the M-17 Stratosphera, but has the same basic configuration: high mounted, straight wings with a large span, and two tail booms each holding a T-tail connected via the horizontal stabiliser.
The Japanese land-based counterpart of the famous Mitsubishi A6M Zero has a similar appearance. It has a narrower, but still framed bubble canopy. Typical are the long, narrow main landing gear legs, retracting inward in the wings. The wheels are on the outside of the struts. Only the struts are covered by gear doors, not the wheels.
The Asuka can be described as a Kawasaki C-1, from which it was indeed derived, with four engines on top of the wings, in the style of the Antonov An-72. The four wheel main gear is attached to the fuselage. It is a one-off research aircraft.
The first Japanese passenger aircraft developed after World War II is similar in appearance as in particular the Hawker-Siddeley 748, but also the British Aerospace ATP. The differences are in the details so look at the photos!
Naval Aircraft Factory N3N
Lesser known than Stearman the N3N was a basic trainer in WW2 as well. Typical recognition points are a cruciform tail, with the horizontal stabilisers placed close to the fuselage though, and the nose being curved inward just behind the uncovered radial piston engine.
This Brazilian look-a-like of the Cessna 172 has a shorter fuselage than its more famous competitor; especially the part aft of the cabin is shorter. The N-591 also has a taller, less swept vertical stabiliser.
Neiva N-621 Universal
Brazil’s primary training aircraft has a wide canopy with multiple frames under which pilot and instructor sit next to each other. The aircraft has a trapezium vertical fin that is about as wide as it is tall. Typical is the spoon shaped nose gear door.
