I am interested in developing some statistics about our aviation hobby community's interests.
For example a breakdown of what percent of aviation hobbyists collect safety cards, inflight magazines, airline memorablia, airline models (scale and brand).
I would really appreciate the users of this discussion groups to respond with their aviation interests which I mentioned above and also mention your location/country please, if possible.
I promise to compile this info and share with the members.
I would like to thank you in anticipation.

I save all of my plane tickets, and also write down the tail numbers of every plane I fly on. Then I come to this site and find a picture of my plane, and save it in a directory on my computer.
I also collect models, plastic snap-fit, at 1:200 scale. The models are a new thing that I've just started up. So far my collection consists of:
At 1:250 scale -
British Airways B777
Royal Jordanian L1011
Untied B747 (die cast)
At 1:200 scale -
Air Canada B767
America West A320
Malev B737 (On order)
Singapore B747 (On order)
US Airways B757 (On order)
Garuda Indonesia A330 (On order)
City Bird MD-11 (On order)
I order 5 planes (about $125 after shipping) every paycheck (2 weeks). I already have my next two orders chosen, just waiting for the money. Actually, I have the money, I just need to space it out a little... My favorite company is Long Prosper, but I'll also readily buy from PPC/CMD and Wooster.

I'm 16 years-old and I'm living in Germany, near Frankfurt Apt. I'm collecting safety cards, I've 200 of them, Dragon (1:400) models(20) and timetables(350). Additionally, I've some snap fit (1:200)(50) and Schabak (1:600) models(220). In june I'm going to start spotting-so I'll make slides. Another hobby is my modell-railway from Maerklin- a very good German brand.
