  • Sort of a comeback

    Hello all,

    After being very active on the predecessor board Swifty's Garage, I never quite got used to the new Garage resulting concentrating on other media such as Instagram, and eventually being absent from here for the past few years.

    A lot has been going on in that time - I have changed my job, included also larger scale items to the collection and most importantly became a dad a year ago. So hobby time is quite limited, but still I have been missing the community here and promised myself to go active with the Garage again.

    I have been in contact with many of the old Swifty's buddies through other media, but I hope to reconnect with some old friends as well as some new ones.

    My collection is around 5000-6000 cars, of which almost all are 3 inch. Around 1000 are 1/87 and some hundred are larger scales. I only collect mint cars, mainly loose but also some carded. I am into street cars from the late 70s until today, all brands possible.

    Greetings from Finland,
    Risto

          So good to see you're back!! And congratulations on becoming a dad. I've been able to enjoy this hobby with my son (now 26) his whole life and he shares the diecast passion with me.

                  Good to see you back, Risto!! Congratulations on being a new Daddy!
                  The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. 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 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.
