Greeteings from Mexico

Post by Collector43 » Sun Aug 05, 2018 3:36 pm

Hello to you all, my name is José Manuel, but you can call me Manolo. I´m new to the forum, and I hope to enjoy a lot while I´m here. I collect whatever I like, although Mercedes-Benz and Porsche are my favorite car brands, and thus the most represented in my collection.

I´ve been collecting model cars for a long time now. I started with Bburago and Maisto in 1/18, then I moved onto better brands. But it was some three years ago that thanks to a Ferrari PW collection here in Mexico, that I discovered 1/43. And, what can I say, this little scale made forget about the bigger ones. I sold all of my 1/18s, and been focused in 1/43 since.

Anyway, that´s it for now.

Cheers,

You know why Italians speak with their hands? Because they have to work a lot on their engines.

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.
