Hi everyone.
I live in Belgium and I've bought my first TAMIYA RC car in 1982. The Ford Ranger.
After that each year at New Year I bought a new Tamiya. In chronologic order: The Williams FW07, Ascona 400, Porsche 956 and finaly the Wild One.
Than things got quiet until 1996. Internet @ home!
I'm member 41 on Tamiyaclub (why is it so quiet overthere?). And before that I was on a forum form an Italian guy I cant remember his name anymore.
So, I think you can easily call me a Tamiya addict..
In 2008 I sold most of my collection (stupid me) to buy my dream sportscar. But I've owned the sportscars now (Midlife crisis it is called I believe) and sold those on and now find myself back on Ebay and other media again to buy the Tamiy's I sold and even more, those I wanted then! I think, I've bought too many cars last year ... well, I don't, my wife does think that :whistle: .
I'm more a New Built collector. I have no specific goal. Most of my interest goes to Top 50 and TA01 and TA02 cars.
Below a picture of my display cabinet after dedusting it this morning.
Cheers for reading!
Koen

Hi Koen, excellent to see you over here.

The “daddy plays with cars” is something I can relate to haha. My youngest calls them stupid cars.

Love the picture you shared, assume that’s my old Renault in there ;)

Yes it is. if you still have the stop/motion movie about you should post it here maybe?

Soon he won't be alone anymore when his English friends come over ;-)

I have lost the video, it was wiped from you tube and I’m so disappointed that I can’t find it. You know it may have even been that chassis, I do remember building the Golf from NIB though too. I still have the link on TC but it’s dead and goes nowhere.

It’ll be the biggest trade I’ve done, I’m looking forward to it. It’ll keep everyone on here guessing now :laugh:
