    When I was first getting planes, I got that one first because I liked how it looked. That was before I had much experience with what the different symbols on the base meant.

    . . . you never forget your first dozen . . . you are off to a good start!

    The first dozen was when NEUS first came out with this game. Now quite a few dozen more plus the dozens of more non official planes I (as well as many others) have. Welcome to the dark side.

    Yeah, welcome to the dark side, we used to boast we had cookies! Not so much now.

    My wife thinks I have too many planes. I feel I do not have enough. The addiction of a great game!

    Another one slides down the slippery slope into the rabbit hole. Be careful, these guys are all enablers! They will be whispering in your ear, “one more can’t hurt.” Then, you’re hooked!

    I remember my first dozen. The next thing I knew I had bombers, two seaters, then pairs of planes. And then, the first repaint happened...

    PS: greetings from a fellow Floridian.

    It is amazing how addictive it all is. Every now and again I’ll think I don’t need any more planes and then think, maybe just one ...

    Rookie, rookie, rookie. You need a cunning plan . . . 6 pack of beer = 1 mini, 2 espresso delights = 1 mini, 2 boxes of donuts + coffees = a bomber, eliminate Fries and that second berger = weight loss and mini . . . Your hobby can be healthy . . . I think of it as therapy and that stuff is expensive . . . Fight Club or flight clubs? Get my drift? When my Harley fell on me at the stop sign and pinned me, I sold it and equipped my model shop and hired a herd of elves, haven't missed the highway since . . . one needs to be creative and have a goodly fellowship to help you find the true path of enlightenment and happiness . . .

    you left out that you have a medical MJ card! Lol just kidding. I’m good, I have no bills except elec., water, sat. Food, and gas. So I’ve got enough to splurge. Now Don’t Tell Trish ( My Wife ). Lol she thinks what is hers is hers and mine is hers! Lol so I try to keep her happy. Happy Wife happy Life! I wonder if she would like a bomber for our Anniversary? Roflmbo! I really don’t need any stimulants to keep me going. I do have more than one hobby so I will divert the funds for my Air Force to other projects at times.

    yep Joe I figured that out right off. When you have these characters with medals coming out the wazoo cheering me on and making subtle suggestions here and there peddling their form of Drug! I didn’t just fall in the rabbit hole, I jumped in head first. Lol

    Thanks John. I actually only bought it because it was a different color. But after your post I looked it up and got an education. That’s what is cool about this game, there is real history it is based on. Thanks

    The Clipper Peace Plan: for every $ I SET aside for minis, I also set aside $ of equal amount into a Mrs Clipper gift card fund. When I order a mini, I also buy her a gift card . . . It takes a bit longer to buy a mini, but she has not complained in over 10 years . . .

    so you decide 16 planes ain't enough been there done that. Made a list of planes I wanted. It was a good list. Then I decided to investigate a bit of 1916. That list got bigger, etc, etc, Hoping it's a final list, but I doubt it

    Damn. Thought I had enough Albatros D.Vs. Have just seen a picture of the Hippel variant. Want, want, want. And so the list gets bigger and the light at the end of the rabbit hole moves a little bit further away

    The unspoken agreement I have with the mammal I married: I get to spend money on miniatures, she gets to spend money on embroidery thread. She seems to be happy with having more thread colors than I have miniatures.

    And then I go pain miniature aircraft with the offspring unit, while she paints fantasy miniatures.

    Everybody seems to win.

    Now, if only I could talk either one of them into playing WGF...
