Real Time (present fleet*)

Double Tap: 100
Hammer Head: 28
Glacier Girl: 9


Total Foam Kits/Planes Since Start of Hobby
Double Tap: ?
Glacier Girl: 49
Hammer Head: 36

At one time or total count? If it's total, 49 that I have photos of, probably even more that I never took a photo of.
And that's full foam, not something like a Slow Stick, which I've most likely had a dozen or so.

On hand at this time, 9.

How about both Glacier Girl?

-Real time (present fleet)
-Total planes

So for me
Real time: 22
Total planes: about 30 foam-ies thus far...full on foam-ies, no hybrids, no balsa in count.

I am really curious to hear about other 'collections'. In part to say to myself, "see, I am not that bad"

Here's a few of the fleet.

My larger foam-ies reside in the garage, this is the mini collection.

The last photo is incriminating...up to no good tonight...and fleet count to go up...time for the other wing half. First wing that is EDF.

Admittedly I may have more than 22...

My spread sheet tells me that my current count for just foam, I have approximately 100 flight ready and unbuilt kits, although had many more before sold off quite a bit. This is not including my wood models and composites, which would easily double that number.
