Welcome beetleworxx.

Antwerp is one of my favourite cities in the world. I lived there for 4 years from 1990 - 1993 (during the time it was the cultural city of Europe) and have been lucky enough many times since.

In fact my 1:43 collecting started in Antwerp. It began with a group of Brumm models bought from my car dealer (Antwerp Car Centre), then later from Herman Verschooten Modelbouw who were at that time were on the Schoenmarkt. They used to carry the full range of Brumm, Rio, Bang, Progetto K, and many other brands that were previously unaccessible to me in Australia. Maybe you've bought a few VW models there as well ?

I look forward to seeing your collection.

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.
