New Member to Scale 143

Post by diecastmm » Mon Apr 06, 2015 2:25 am

Hello everyone, I have just joined this group, thanks to JSB 33's recommendation that I do so. I have been a longtime collector of 1:18 diecasts but, like JSB 33 and others,I am now changing my focus to 1:43. I look forward to learning from each of you and expanding my 1:43 collection.

Thanks for the welcome, everyone. I am from Virginia, USA and collect primarily road cars but also some race cars,with my favorites being from the Can-Am series from the sixties and seventies. On the road cars, I tend to gravitate towards the imports but mostly, whatever catches my eye. With the 1:43, I like Minichamps, Kyosho, Spark and AutoArt but also have some IXO, Best, Bang, Red Line, Hot Wheels Elite and NEO,

Welcome to the forum Marshall

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 there! :)
"I have to admit I dont understand 1:43. 1:12 and larger I get, but most 1:43 I have seen (MOST) dont look like real cars. They are usually off in some way."
