The airplane seen in the backround seems to be a Soviet WWII-era Yak and not a U.S P51 Mustang.

If Parker issues a new Parker 51 later this year, it will be the second new issue of the Parker 51. I have both of the new-issue models that Parker put out in the late 1990s/early 2000s; one had a black body and the other a turquoise body, each having fancy metal caps. They were C/C-fillers.

Dip n Scratch

I have an Aerometric P51 (black) and some clones. The Hero 616 is a very cheap copy of the P51 with rough edges on the cap to rake your fingers.

Alright for inks that are known to be somewhat anti-social.

The Wing Sung 601 looks like a visual clone of a vac '51, but it is actually a short-stroke piston-filler with a spring-assisted return stroke.

My first WS 601 was a demonstrator. I bought another two in shades of brown so none of them clashed with the P51 or the Hero 616's.

What would a re-issued P51 do that the two Chinese clones don't do already?

Great question. I have some doubts whether there would be a decent-enough market for a new-issue Parker 51, in light of the WS 601 and its ilk. However, Parker likely has tested the market in some reasonable manner to make its decision about the Parker 51. What I'd like to see from Parker is a reissue of the Parker 61 capillary filler, and I'd like to see it sold with its own rubber bulb for flushing/cleaning.

I checked the picture again in the original post. It is a P51. You can check the shape of the underbelly which is classic to P51s. It looks like a P-51A. You may have been thrown off because it didn't have the bubble canopy that's very familiar with the P-51D. Good to see another aviation enthusiast!

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.

      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to

      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
