Hi from Australia

Post by GTHO » Sun Nov 11, 2018 4:03 am

Hi,

Thanks for letting me join. I am from Perth, Australia and have a collection which really has no theme :)

My 1:43 are cars from the 60s and 70s, racing and sports cars from Europe.

I also have many Australian racing and road cars in this scale.

I shall see on the other forums

Hello and 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.

It is a small town - more Roos than people. In fact, some of my neighbours are Roos

With a name like “GTHO” you must be a good kind of dude (even if you’re from the other side if the island :D ).

Welcome along.

Howdy cousin.

No guessing which race your Aussie race cars probably feature from.

G'day and welcome to the world's best forum for 1:43 model collectors. I only saw the inside of Perth International Airport at 2.00 am before taking a 7.00 domestic flight to Albany many years ago. Fabulous few days there before heading east for the Oz GP in Melbourne.

Right, just blustering up the Northern Hemisphere collective of 143. I can also admit to having visited Perth............no not the Scottish one! Back in 2004. Very much enjoyed so welcome along to the banter and behaviorists ;)
