A hello from the UK

Post by G4WJH » Tue Dec 15, 2015 4:41 am

Good grief....so its not just me..!!!! (am so relieved).

Hi all, an avid F1 collector...am now seeking the best way to mount and display my 300 car collection (..I know, I know....amateur....).

Thinking UV protection, LED lighting, how to get good access...and catering for that 1 in a 1000 year earthquake.....

All the Best

No it's not just you

Welcome to the forum

Wall cabinets out of direct sunlight where possible, well lit as required. As to the Earthquake i can't help :)

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.

Hi All...here's my block of 20 years of F1, mainly thanks to Damon Hill in 93 (do you realise how much you've cost me Damon?...you know I was a fan of your Dad! - AND have a compulsive collection disorder).

There are gaps (which makes it all the more exciting)....if a Car dosnt have a drivers name then its missing from my collection.

The ones that really annoy me are 1994 and 2002 - the Jaguar R3 and the BAR....have no idea why 'nobody' elected to make them...I think Minichamps ought to make me a 'one off' presentation of each!!!!

So...if its now late at night for you...and insomnia is hovering.....then just read through the following....and see how far you get down the page before you doze (and yes...I do have some duplicates).

Enjoy!!!

Welcome aboard and clearly yes, its not just you hahaha

As to reference to lighting and such, LED strips is how I roll, bike inner tube seismic restraint cabinet to wall and internal wall with no direct sunlight here, can't say F1 does anything for me personally but tight theme you have there, wait until the buggers on here create you some sub themes :lol:

Welcome G4WJH

Looks like you'll fit right in here.

Just remember, we're a simple bunch on here on the forum. Most of us never made it past 8th Grade, so we hate lists, but we love pictures.
