Default NG Model request...FINAL

It appears that everyone out there wants something made and so far your doing the best you can...But its getting old with every collector wishing for everything under the sun.

Here is my answer to everyone's wish list. A fellow DACer has computed and quoted the following as an answer to how many airliners have flown:

From all regions of the world, starting at 1930 to today, and including regional jets and props, charter aircraft, and accounting for airframes that wore more than 1 livery (so they are counted +1 for each livery) a total of 840,988 frames have flown.

I request you do all 840,000 plus airframes..

There you go folks, I just eliminated everyone's dreaded wish list threads!

Let me see that list so I can make sure the C-141B is included in there! And like Big Al asked, will Gemini be releasing the C-141B?

...I started a thread asking this very question in another section...forget where due to life! Thanks Crownvic for answering this question I had...don't know if this was posted in the thread I started because I don't know where I started it. It may not even be on DA.C, wait am I on DA.C now? Where am I!

That is a bunch of planes...when all the heads of the family get together they ought to divide and conquer all on the list without duplicates Divide it by the mfg who will EXECUTE (-no pun intended) the best rendering of a particular airframe

Just an update here. I have a new number based on improvements to my algorithm and accuracy adjustments to my spreadsheet databases (as well as learning about a few very short lived start-up airlines in the Philippines in the early '70s). The new and mostly accurate number as of 11-20-2019 is: 990,149.

Please get on it, NG. I have many fleets to build.
