Hello from Ontario, Canada

Postby caravan » Sun Dec 25, 2016 9:31 pm

Hello everyone. My name is Sergei. I'm another man from Canada/Toronto and I have just joined this forum.
I began to collect 1/43 scale model cars after my 50 years birthday when one of my friends gave me a small Mercedes-Benz model as a present. That toy has been sitting on books shelf about 2 years alone when I suddenly realized I want to be a collector of model cars. At the beginning my priorities were: American cars 1930-1960, USSR cars before1970 and Rally Paris-Dakar Winners. After 5 years of collecting 1/43 scale and have around 370-400 road model cars and 75 Rally Dakar model cars I changed my focus and decided to keep three main threads in my Collection: Station Wagons, PickUps and Rally Dakar cars. Of course any other models which I like I'm trying to have on my shelves.
I've find a lot of fantastic Collections in this forum and very exited to be here.

Sergei

Welcome Sergei! I look forward to seeing your Dakar collection. I used to collect every 1:43 Dakar model, winner or not, but HPI changed that when they released their Pajero models. Now I focus only on winners.

Here's a thread in the Themed Pictures forum: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=1649

Welcome to the forum Sergei

British roads have history. Some were built by the Romans. British road investment being what it is, they have only been re-surfaced a few times since.

Welcome Sergei. My collection also started with a gift that sat by itself for quite a while until I got the collector bug.

G'day and welcome, Sergei.

I bet it's cold up there at the moment. A good time to spend inside with your models.
