Hello, fellow collectors

Post by Sanchez » Thu Mar 13, 2014 2:47 am

Hello,
my name is Sanzhar.
Probably some of you have seen me on couple of other diecast forums under the same nickname.
Been lurking on this forum for a while and I must say that unlike many other forums people here know history and value behind subject of matter they collect.
In particular dbonser's information and pictures about Safari Rally models were very helpful for me.
Most of my collection is 1:18 but I have quite a few 1:43 models.
I was born in the USSR so my first models were 1:43 Soviet made diecast replicas with opening parts when I was a child.
Wish my parents didn't allow me to play with them when I was a child so I could enjoy them now. :lol:
My collection has no strict direction but there are few particular themes I am attracted to.
In 1:43 these are renntransporters, matching cars for them, Safari Rally and miscellaneous JDM.

Cheers

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.

Hello Sanzhar. It's nice to hear others notice what makes this forum a special place!

I think you will fit in just fine with those collecting themes. ;)

Welcome to the forum Sanzhar. You are correct in noticing that the discussion on these boards is about far more than just how nice the latest model is

Hello and welcome. I've got one Soviet model with opening parts, the 1/43 Lada 1200 from the 80's and I remember it was fascinating toycar as a kid, played with it too so the paint has chipped but otherwise still intact. Had the Lada Station Wagon too but it got wrecked totally :oops:

Cheers, gents.
My favourite Soviet 1:43 was Niva with a trailer.
Terrific details it had.
