Myself only around $500, but If you count me and my dad, as well as planes then it would REALLY add up

And you guys thought a large scale was expensive!!

After getting my 1/6 FG I spent a good $3000+ in it alone and my new Harm 1/5 is about $1000 now which isn't bad since the car alone is about $1200 to start. But coming up next year will not be much since I've almost bought everything I can for the FG and the Harm wil be a paking lot ride.

I think the common factor here is "Don't tell the wife" no matter how much we spend.

I am in the 1500-2000 mark this year

savage and upgrades is over 1500 alone

Plan on buying a little more as well. It depends on if you buy a vehicle or parts or what you buy that year. i will probably buy a new vehicle every year now
