This is going to be of a huge importance. I wish Spark was able to do the same.

I am building myself a F1 database of all models released so far, however I narrowed the scope to seasons between 1974 and 1986.

Since more than half of those models were made by Minichamps, this database will help a lot validating my database.

After I have it completed (I don't think it's going to take long), I can expand the scope by adding more F1 seasons or even other motorsport divisions.

Hi Serafa, I got your PM but cannot reply as yet (too low status here on the board). I like your plans and wanted to discuss further. Can you contact me via the chat function (blue button on the bottom right of each page on http://www.hobbyDB.com)), please?

Hi Johnny,

If you like we could try to create an IXO database, they are part of our "target" list anyway. Let me know if you like to discuss it.

Hi guys,
I just wanted to let you know that I am joining the HobbyDB project as a curator for the Formula 1 and Le Mans pages.
My main contribution will be on Formula 1 of course, since I have a more comprehensive knowledge in this area of motorsport and Le Mans is still something relatively new for me. However, since the Le Mans page didn't have yet a curator, I decided to contribute with that as well.
I know that we have a long road ahead, however, it will be enormously helpful as a comprehensive tool to support collectors.
Any suggestion from the fellow collectors in the forum will be highly appreciated.

That would be a huge help! If you don't mind sharing with me, it could save a lot of work so I can use this as a starting point.

Thank you so much for your help, Danny! I just replied to your e-mail.

Your database does not only have the models, but all F1 results correlated to the models. Fantastic work!
