I've always wanted to play a WWII version of Blue Max. I really like the look of this, but I just don't have the space, time, or money to invest in miniatures. Can this game be played using only cardboard counters, as the blurb on the BGG page suggests? There are currently no pictures of it being played w/ counters in the Gallery. If it can, does the game come with them, or would you have to make your own?

You'd have to make your own, but there is no reason you couldn't play the game with counters instead of miniatures.

Unfortunately, those only eliminate the OP's time concern.

For a good source of counters, look for used copies of Mustangs + expansion, or the Avalon Hill/Battleline Air Force and Dauntless.

You will want to track altitude and speed in some way, most like by using d6s. I used to play using counters with balsa wood blocks fitting the counter footprint to track altitude.

if you have access to photoshop elements or another photo editing program you can go to http://www.airwar.ru/other/draw_fw.html
there you can find airplane drawings you can cut and past with program and make counters from
