I am particularly interested in the history of dogfighting & air combat manoeuvring.
By the German aviation during the WW2 as well as by the French aviation post 1945 until the 50's.
Very happy to join here and I’m an aviation enthusiast from China.
I am learning to paint and I am very interested in experimental airplanes from the Soviet era. I am also a fan of science fiction and anime.
Hope to learn more here and create better anthropomorphic works of airplanes
A warm welcome to all recent members.
And a special thanks to everyone that posts in this thread to share a few words to know about who are the humans driving the forum growth.
Nice to know we're meeting from many places and a wide range of ages, adding a treasure of diverse backgrounds.
My name is João, 20 years old, coming from Portugal. Ive been interested in aviation as a whole since a very early age, but i realy did not have the resources to learn about it properly. I mainly created this acount so that if i needed to, discuss some doubts, and maybe in the future, properly discuss some topics.
A warm hello from the Netherlands. As an aviation professional from the Netherlands, I joined this page to learn more about the lesser well-known parts of aviation history.
I am looking forward to expanding my aviation knowledge and possibly share some of mine!
Warm greetings from the lowlands!
My name is Francesco Pettinelli and I'm a 46 old tecnology enthusiast though I'm an accountant by trade
My preferite aviation field are the late sixties proposals submitted for the VNX and F-X programs
Thank you all
Hello, my name is Rick I am part of a few wargaming groups and have a love of alt history. I stumbled upon this site while looking up images for Anti-Air systems. And well place looked fun so I signed up .
I'm Steve, I'm a 59 year old retired software developer, boardgamer and aviation enthusiast. I volunteer at Duxford Air Museum about once a week and build scale model aircraft. Most of my time at the moment is going into http://scaleaircraftstuff.com/, a place to search for kits and accessories related to an aircraft you want to build.
I'm interested in anything with an X- in front of it, especially from WW2 and after.
Hi I'm Craig, I am 49, and live in Bournemouth, England. I am a product designer currently working in motor yacht design, and I am very interested in military aviation technology and love making radio controlled models of jets and occasionally prototypes. (www.jetworks.online).
Hi, I'm Nathan, I'm 45 and live in Melbourne, Australia. I'm a mechanical engineer, formerly worked in Europe in the aerospace industry, now working in other industries and I have a specific interest in aero jet engines (so much that I have a nerdy website dedicated to engine data, see also other recent post: http://jet-engines.net).
I'm Jeff, a Disabled US Army Vet (Cold War/non-combat related) with 5 adult children, 2 grandchildren and a LOT of time on my hands. I was chasing down pics of the BAe Harrier line, which led me here. Also looking into some of the Bugatti stuff. I'll probably be more involved in the What If Modelers. Looking to create something highly maneuverable, yet possibly meeting the US FAR part 103 regs. Design, model and see what happens...
Hi everyone. I'm a teenager from the United States, and I stumbled upon this forum researching bomber defense missiles. I love wacky cold war designs from the 1950s to the 1980s, and am interested in history and areospace enginnering.
i guess i never formally introduced myself to the SP forum.... well... hello im Sean from the states i am interested in almost anything i come across i love performance vehicles i have thought of many ways to make the M1A1's Avco Lycoming diesel turbine make more power reliably. (that should tell you a lot) i am a bit of a WW2 military fanatic/ametur historian my favorive WW2 era ship is the Iowa class BB-63 USS Missouri i love america and btw 9/11 is coming up so im in a mood. i build scale models of literally anything. love flying drones/UAV's. i am also a tech wizard as everyone calls me. if you have any questions just ask.
Hi all, thanks for the join. My name is Graham, I live in Wales UK after moving from South London some 7 years ago. My wife and I are in the throws of rebuilding a stone and slate farmhouse which was first built around 1855 (ish), which is almost finished. I'm now retired, after working most of my working life in the Petrochemical Industry (UK) as a Liquids Handling Engineer. I am interested in all things Aircraft, hold a Private Pilot's Licence and am an avid RC Model Aircraft builder & flyer. I found this forum while looking for something unusual to build as a scale radio controlled model
Hello. My name is Chris and I am a 53yo father of 3 living in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. I work in Telecommunications as a Project Manager by day.....other times I am an avid RC Giant Scale enthusiast. I joined this forum because I am in love with the Celera 500L and would like to build a flying scale replica (say 3m wing span) in the near future. But first.....I must research. So here I am, looking forward to discussing this is beautiful aircraft and where I hope to find more info than just Google has to offer......cheers Chris.
Hi all! Hayden - just moved to Phoenix, AZ from SF/Bay. Work in tech industry. Long time watcher of mil-tech, scale modeler, and generally just a technology buff. Love what I've seen so far here. Wildly different from the UFO / tin hat crowd than I expected. Fantastic, detailed, and highly knowledgeable posts. Really interesting anecdotes, etc. If I can ever contribute - I will - but more than likely a fly on the wall!
I often stumbled upon this forum looking for neerdy aircraft information and became dissapointed when I could't open the appendixes...
I developing combustion engines (proudly holding on as long as I can!) and I do have a special intrest in flight engines ever since. I live in Aachen, Germany. Old aero engines are a big inspiration to me and love to gather information. Acually I came here, because of my intrest in the XF-12 and their cooling and charging system. It's one of my favourite planes and I'm impressed by its speed and long range (and its beauty).
I’m located in the lush green mountains in eastern United States and have worked in the aerospace world for nearly 40 years (yes, an old guy..). Having been associated with many aerospace and defense development projects over the years I’m all about new and exciting flying technologies. Interests have included radio control modeling, spending time in the outdoors and seeing new places and meeting great people. My job permits me access to some of the most fascinating aerospace projects they tell me I’m not supposed to talk about. I’m looking forward to interacting with others here and learning. Hope others find my post helpful. Cheers!
