    Any model vehicle collectors out there?

    Enthusiasts of the car/truck/bike/train and all things wheeled people accessing this site may well be, but it is not to say that all can afford their own Porsche, Ferrari, Curtain Sider or Chieftain Tank! So, here is the question: is anybody out there also a model vehicle collecting enthusiast?

    a) Do you have a scale model collection, eg Corgi or others? If so, do you specialise in collecting any area like WWII and military, Trucks & commercial, vintage, F1, buses & trams or bikes?

    b) Do you prefer to model make, eg Airfix or equivalent?

    c) Do you RUN your own model cars, eg radio controlled? A skill all of its own!

    The choice available is phenomenal.


    Personally I collect vehicles from WWII, and I have a resonable no of models now, from armoured vehicles and tanks to staff cars and trucks. There is a large choice available so I have to be selective as I do not have museum sized display space whatsoever! I also save models of American cars from the 50s, I have some models of steam driven trucks and have a good collection of model Harley Davidson bikes.

    Am I the only 'big kid' on here that has never grown up?

    Or are you all 'big boys and girls' who only like 'the real thing' - and we aren't talking Pepsi here!

    I adore strolling around toy and model collectors fairs - both from the point of view of seeing what new models are out and also to see which models I can recognise as being one I owned or saw as a child. I am always staggered at the huge number of people who attend these fairs - it is big business.


    OR, quite separately, are you a closet model railway enthusiast? If so, what scale, where do you run your railway, do you make all your own layouts and scenery and do you run trains to timetables?!!! Reveal all!

    Over to others...

    Centuries.... eternity, and as you said "long long time ago". In popular language it just means "ages", which can be weeks, months or years. My dictionary suggests "eeuwigheid" in Nederlands.

    That M. C. Finch really ought to take more care of his fleet. Nobody's going to send their goods in a truck like that! . He must be bankrupt by now for lack of business. Dear dear!
