Hello from the Netherlands

Post by danielnl » Wed Oct 09, 2019 7:44 am

Glad I found a forum to share my collection.
I'm from Netherlands and collector since childhood.
First ever 1:18 models. But because I got too many switched to 1:43.
First years of anything and everything.
But now two years since I save only BMW models, in 1:43.
I would like my models to share with you.
Leave a comment but if you find a nice model.

Welcome Daniel

Many others here have walked the 1:18 path, only to switch later to 1:43. You're in good company.

As a BMW in 1:1 owner I occasionally add their 1:43 dealer models to my collection. The most recent having been the i8 Roadster in metallic copper finish. I got the heads up from one of our members on this forum. My local dealership (UK) ordered one for me from Germany as it wasn't on the UK promotional models list at that time and it arrived a couple of days later.

The other recent addition was from BMW Park Lane in London - a 6 Series Coupe Concept car in white and which was being sold as a toy because it has a pull back motor. It's 1:43 scale and decalled with the red and blue stripes and was very cheap, but still a very acceptable model. It was being sold off cheap as it was due to soon disappear off their shelf.

BMW used to do a collectors models catalogue every year but like everything else it's now an on-line operation. I believe the i8 Roadster is now on the BMW UK listing.

Welcome to our forum.

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.
