Hello from Yorkshire

Post  Smudger on Thu Mar 06, 2014 10:27 am

Hi there, I met a few site members down at Race Retro last month. I've been collecting 1/43 rally models for a good while and find getting hold of the decals the most difficult part... Well and the time to get on with them of course! I particularly like the 70s and 80s stuff, not a big fan of 'modern' rally cars if I'm honest, I guess it shows my age!  Very Happy

Welcome to the forum. This is a place where your money disappears rapidly and you loose your sanity quickly. Ask billy (bmd)  Laughing

Welcome to the forum Smudger - it will probably have been Zeus or myself that you spoke to at Race Retro - we were about the Metro 6R4 model display for the majority of the show. Wink

I hope you're very happy here. cheers

Hi Smudger,

Welcome on board from another newbie. I can vouch for the friendly nature of the folks on here, and how easily they can part you from your bank account Laughing  Don't worry though, you'll get far more pleasure from the models  Smile

I'd need to get an extension built or sell some of my 1/1 'toy' cars to have room for the 1/18 stuff - Nice but just to big to collect in any decent numbers imo.

No thanks, Billy, don't fancy eating horses.  Laughing  D'you think I'm French or something!?

Welcome aboard to the good ship DRM. Plenty of banter, advice and encouragement available here and as already mentioned, plenty of ways to entice cash out of your accounts.  jocolor

Life is constantly changing and evolving, however one thing is always consistent - your humour, rhyme and prose Billy! Wink

Where would we all be without you?.... A much darker place that's for sure!

If you look at the time of Billy's posting, you'll spot it may have been after a session of the falling-down water... which may account for it? Maybe!  Surprised   jocolor 

Nice one, Billy!! Cheers, Steve
