Hello from Palm Coast, Florida (USA)!

Postby Batman » Sat Jul 02, 2016 10:43 pm

Hello Everyone!

I am excited to be here! I started collecting 1:43 scale vehicles almost 18 years ago after realizing my 1:18 scale collection was taking up too much space in my NYC apartment. I still have larger scale models but that collection was downsized after I moved to Florida, while my 1:43 scale collection increased. I also have a few Matchbox regular wheels and Superfast, redline Hot Wheels, and Corgi diecasts from my childhood.

I like all sorts, from American muscle, European sports cars, racers, sedans, coupes, cabriolets to 007 vehicles... and Batmobiles! Most of my 1/43 collection were made by Minichamps, AUTOart, TSM, Matchbox, IXO, Vanguards/Corgi, and Hot Wheels. I also have some Brooklin and Western white metal models. Sadly, most of them are boxed up and stored in closets.

Have a great weekend!

Hopefully you have a more colorful collections. The subject matter certainly sounds interesting. If you stick around long enough you will find even more types to collect. ;)

Anyway, we look forward to seeing your collection - 1:43 and 1:18.

Welcome to the forum Batman. You're first name wouldn't be Bruce would it?

Welcome to the forum

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.

Thank you everyone for the warm welcome! Glad to be here. :D

To answer some of the questions asked...

Not all my cars are black! LOL They come in a wide array of colors. I seem to have a lot of red cars. ;)

My alter ego's name is Rollie, not ahem, Bruce! That would be too obvious! :lol:

I have a few TV/Movie cars other than 007 and Batmobiles. Dukes of Hazard's General Lee, Speed Racer's Mach 5, Fast and Furious' Dodge Charger, Nissan Skyline and Ford Torino. I may have a few other's, I can't recall at the moment. :)
