Re: (Belated) Requiem for the R-44

except for the picture windows of the R-36s, all those cars were virtually identical.

That's the thing. The WF cars had those rounded picture windows and door windows which matched their height and level. It fit with the semi-circular, striped WF design. Now picture that design on the other SMEE cars. Except for the R-10's, -12's, and -15's, the windows tended more towards sharp corners and were divided into 3 parts (as opposed to the single, long, picture window, or short picture window and rounded sign). It simply would not flow as well. The only other cars I can think of that would come close would be cars like the R-38, or even the R-40 or -42, which had picture windows but less corrugation to break up the design.
