  • Hello Everybody

    Greetings from the UK. I am a novice diecast collector who has been lurking here for a month or two. Now that I have passed the massive milestone of 100 cars (​​​​​​) I have decided to join up here.

    My experience and knowledge of cars extends to "ooh that looks nice, I like that." So I won't be contributing that much I'm afraid. I shall just add my collection one by one in The Showroom for now as I get better acquainted with the rules here. I'm sure somebody will let me know to move my posts to somewhere more appropriate.

    I have mostly 1:64s but my collection ranges from 1:43 to 1:72.

    So, thank you all and I hope to add a little something to this forum.

    Welcome to the Garage - we all started at your point sometime in our collections. Do share your collection with us as it is always nice to hear the perspectives on models that perhaps we "older" collectors take for granted. And don't hesitate to ask questions - lots and lots of good resource here!

      Welcome fellow collector, in fact you wouldn't even have to of had your first model yet, and would still be welcome here, but I'd say at a hundred cars you just might be hooked already. LOL

      We always like to see peoples collections, so looking forward to your posts.

          Welcome to the garage. we can't all start our collection with 125476 model cars so 100 looks like a great start for more to come

          Cool quote and very recognisable, My collection is limited to Mercedes-Benz and Mini Cooper models only and "ooh that looks nice, I like that" is my main selection point

            Welcome to the garage. It's a little messy, and the coffee is a bit stale, but there's plenty else here to enjoy, so grab a stool, or crate, and have a seat.

            Oh yes, bangers and mash night is Thursday.

              Welcome aboard!
              The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

              Thank you for your understanding.
