Aviation Hobby Survey

Sat May 13, 2000 1:09 pm

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 -
Continental B777
Lufthansa A340
GrandAir A300
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.
