Signing on from California

Post by cruisin101 » Sun Mar 12, 2017 10:34 pm

Hey Fellas,

I've always had model cars, and planes, but started finding all of these fantastic 1:43 models less than two years ago. Help! I can't stop, where's the 12-step Discussion on here?! HA! Can't get enough and it's so relaxing to have them out to look at. I've attached a couple of photos to begin sharing my collection. I have a mere 300 or so at the moment. I see on here that is quite modest! So many models, so little time! Cheers

Welcome to the forum. Great diorama

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 and good luck with the 12 step program:

Step 1 - search eBay (or similar)
Step 2 - make purchase
Step 3 - realise there is something else you want
Step 4 - search eBay.....

Otto does 1:43 now ???

Very nice diorama, was that self-made? Either way, looks very retro and clever.

Don't let everyone scare you about the budget, you wouldn't be here if you didn't already know about that ;)

Thanks guys for the generous welcome, this is going to be lots of fun! I'm chuckling quite a bit from the comments already. :D

Thanks for the compliments on the Diorama too. I created it with software I use at work and had it printed as well as cut into pieces by the printing company. It was an experiment, and I've got three more!

Stay tuned! 8-)

Welcome Crusin. As the other guys have noted, the thing we do best around here is live vicariously through others and help them spend their money :D .
