Hi from SW France

Post by RoLy43T » Mon Aug 08, 2016 11:51 am

Hi everyone, first I'm not French, I just live here. I had a look over some of the other posts before introducing myself and I see most of you are serious collectors. My thing is modelling more than collecting but I can see how it can become addictive. When I look at the stuff for sale on Ebay I think yeah I like that and I like that one too. But also when I see the poor little neglected ones I think yeah maybe I can improve your lot in life so I'm building a collection of wrecks that I can strip, respray, mend and put back together.
I'll hopefully be showing some of these as I do them.

cheers for now

Hi and welcome. Detailing and improving cheap models, repairing broken ones etc. gives quite rewarding results :) Looking forward to see some pics.

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.
