    I lost count. I think a more accurate question is how many years would take me to build my rocket collection. At this count, I’m going on 50 years.

    Hello,
    After a ten+ year break from rocketry I have just one surviving rocket. It's an Estes, but not sure which one as I didn't use the stock decals. I did just order some rockets this weekend for the first time in a while !

    30 total. 3 in sick bay. A few mid power rockets, mostly just low power. I don't have a lot of money and space to build big stuff.

    Without counting, I'd say 60 in flight-ready condition, approximately 120 in sick bay, and 500+ still in the bag/box

    Four. I has four.

    Used to has more, but I has four.

    Can you tell I'm feeling a bit deprived, here? Next Christmas, I will have been flying rockets, off and on, for 50 years. Need more rockets. Need bigger rockets. Need more, bigger rockets!

    That photo has 90...most of them flight ready and a few yet to be painted...

    I’m currently working on Estes Hornet with upscale and downscale siblings... IMG_0610.jpg

    All still needing paint.

    Two still needing paint. An Astra from Quest and a Mark 4 from New Way.
    My partner in rocketry has a mini mean machine needing slight repairs and a mini fat boy that's been demoted to windowsill. Due to a CATO, the entire motor mount except for the upper centering ring was blasted out and about 1 cm square is missing from the upper corner of the "F" fin.

    Thanks...it started with an Estes patriot we painted white with Curious George decals and a Big Bertha painted yellow called the big banana for my then three year old daughter who is now 14 (in the photo). All my kids have helped me and have contributed to the fleet over the years...

    I’m trying to work on my technique and build higher quality ships in an effort to slow construction...my wife is incredibly supportive and takes it all in stride [emoji6]

    It’s my joy I share with my kids...so much fun!
