Hello Everyone

Post by RGT288 » Thu Jul 11, 2019 12:56 pm

Hello all. New poster here from sunny England.

I used to post on a different diecast forum a few years ago before that was closed down, haven’t posted anywhere since so thought I would take the plunge and start again.

I’m only interested in collecting one thing - Ferrari’s.

I collect the F1 cars (in 1:43), Road Cars (in 1:18) and Le Mans cars (in both 1:43 and 1:18). Tend to try and focus on the cars from within my lifetime (30 years) though I’m aiming to collect an F1 car from every year Ferrari have raced.

Look forwards to interacting with you all. Cheers.

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.

Thanks all!

I’ve only ever been interested in Ferrari since a very young age, even though I’m from Woking and grew up just a few minutes from the McLaren factory!

Welcome Mate. Not much to celebrate at Woking in recent years, so the passion for the red side is understandable. Plenty of us share a similar interest.

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

Welcome to S143. I also migrated here from a defunct 1:43 Forum. You will definitely like it here. Looking forward to seeing your collection.

Hello, and welcome! :) :)
