Welcome to the club! Fair warning though, this hobby is highly addictive. I’ve been at this since the 1970’s and haven’t been able to stop. Every time I buy something, l say that’s it and then something new comes out and I’ve gotta have it. It’s a great hobby, with a lot of great people. Mike

Indeed.It is highly addictive.Whatever scale you collect,whatever machines you collect,trucks,trains,tractors,cranes,earthmoving,the collection is never complete.I have been collecting 40+ years,now and always looking for other things.I have said enough is enough,thousands of times!There is a really good selection of figures and accessories,to go with whatever it maybe.Once you have been bitten by the collecting bug,that's it!LOL.It is a great way to kill time,and if you are collecting die-cast,you only need light.Somethings are really expensive,remember you are paying for someone to make it.Wink

Welcome to the forum, don't be afraid to ask questions as many of us have some of the answers!!!!

I'm a kid at heart, so I will play with any model construction vehicle from 1:87 scale to 1:1 scale!!!!

Age is a state of time NOT a state of mind!!

Welcome, good to have new younger members. Years ago there was a friendly rivalry. Are you a Dirt guy, or a Crane guy? Whistle

Welcome to the forum. You rarely hear any mention of the small group of logging guys in here although I guess we get lumped in with the dirt guys most of the time haha.
