    My hobby interests are all over the map, being particularly fond of aircraft from the WWII, Korean & Viet Nam war era timeframes. I also have a "thing" for the Century series jets, as well as the first generation of jets. I'm also a BIG fan of all the attack aircraft types, making for a rather substantial swath through history regarding military aviation in general that absorbs me. Also a WWI aviation buff, being particularly attracted to the Fokker Dr.I and D.VII. Recently I have developed a taste for Hellenic Air Force subjects, specifically the Mirage 2000 (what a beauty), F-4 Rhino and F-16 Viper.

    As is probably well known here by now, I'm also a major fan of the venerable Hawker Typhoon; what a splendid aircraft!

    Welcome to LSP, Ali, the best modeling site there is for our hobby.
  2. I couldn't resist, so I started cobbling together the beginnings of the rifling experiment. None too neat (or accurate), but looks like it may have real promise. Bore measures almost exactly 5/16" diameter, so a 31/32" wide piece was made up to fit the circumference. Not altogether coincidentally, 5/16" is almost dead bang on 128mm in 1:16 scale.
  3. A subtle thing, but Trumpeter also caught the beveled edges of the upper rear hull plate that allowed for more "down look" capability for the rearward facing periscopes, so a real nice touch there.
  4. Text says that's a female, but I have some serious doubts.
  5. Aside from the aircraft number boo-boo, I like it too, and consider it a very admirable effort. By far, my biggest problem is selecting one, possibly two schemes at the most for big Phantoms, is I just simply do not have the room for as many as appeal to me. I mean if I could pull it off, I'd have at least one each of the C, D, E, F, J, N, and B. For me, that's barely doable in 1:48, let alone 1:32. Perhaps I just need to buy a case of 1:72 Phantom kits?
  6. Mine would be a SEA scheme, definitely.
  7. That would probably be my approach, though I'd slant the pieces that would be the lands so that when rolling the tube lengthwise, It would automatically provide the needed twist. I may well give it a whirl, as the only AM barrel I've yet seen looks exactly as you've described, like screw threads, and that is quite unacceptable.
  8. Not only allowed, but encouraged.
  9. Ditto. I'd basically have to check every box.
  10. Yes, there are tons of US national insignia sheets out there. The names of specific manufacturers escape me at the moment, but they're readily available.
  11. I've not seen them here, so what very few I have, my roommate ordered (quite some months back) from a feebay seller.
  12. My solution is to just not order from outside of the US. This way, whatever I do order, always shows up within a week, sometimes less.
