    After more than a few of these comments I appreciate the varied views of the crowd...especially liked the "custodian comment".
    Think a recount via spreadsheet is cheating the process...hands on should be the ultimate approach to a new count...
    though I've given serious consideration to the Columbian Cartel Method...just weigh the semi truck containers.

    I have two methods, "Batch" and "Full"--Batch is logging them in as they arrive and I process them in, Full is opening the boxes and counting tray by tray.

    I have 37 WoW/WoG planes, and 5 Tri-pods.

    the last plane on my list, a hannover cl.iii lufskraftkreite, arrived today. A milestone, seeing as it's about 15 planes longer than my original list there's possibly more that are "like" but not "essential" but I can now play from Sept '16 onwards

    That's sort of how my collecting is going...

    1) Well THESE are the only ones that really interest me.
    2) There are a few more that I really should get if the price is right.
    3) Need a couple for certain scenarios and matchups.
    4) Hmm... I really would like some particular planes that ARES didn't produce... wonder if I can commission someone to repaint them for me?
    5) Wouldn't 6 planes from that Jasta look good on the board?
    6) You know, I think I might try some repainting myself.
    7) I wonder if those Shapeways are really that hard to prep...

    Before you know it, I'm averaging 10 planes a month. In another 427 years, I'll have as many as Tim does now...

    So how many years would 10 planes a month be? Inquiring minds want to know

    well that didn't last long. 3 days after completing my list, I've been looking at planes (just looking!) and gone "want, want, must have" and so it goes on

    It’s only a minor score in the scheme of things, but thanks to McCudden’s SE5a I have just hit the 100 plane mark (and no the other 99 aren’t all Bristols). Never really had the skill, or confidence to go down the shape ways or repaint route so mine are all ‘originals’ (Nexus or Ares). Just need to Covid to sod off so I can use them in anger once again.

    How many planes do you have? NOT ENOUGH!

    Now THAT is a proper answer!

    We joke about your plane count (oh, and SAILS), but your dedication and support to this community is legendary. Salute!
