Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Topic for tonight?
Dale has suggested elsewhere, admitting you have a problem is the first step!
How many more engines than planes do you own?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Not so hard. As there will be a difference. Count all the ARF's/Kits around here. Count the box, 2 drawers of engines. Maybe the engines win.

But any divorce lawyer would love some fool to open his evening with information like that !

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Please don't make me count my engines. It makes me cry when I stop and realize how much I have spent on them. Then again I could have spent it in a bar...

Well John, it is your topic called tonight. (and a good one)

Hard to answer. I was leaning towards just a list of brand names.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

My money would be that Doug might have the most diverse list of brand names.
