Re: Hi Fellow Collectors From Australia

Re: That is a very simplistic approach with no proven factual evidence or study. If you think it works, more power to you! Me: Therein is the problem. You are conditioned to believe in what you are told by the system and when someone, anyone, tries to make you think differently, outside the box, you...

I bought a couple of 5oz tubs of "The Treatment" Model Wax The Final Detail, online through eBay, made by Treatment Products, Chicago. IL a few years ago and apparently, using a Dremel with polishing pads, it is possible to reinvigorate and protect model paint, so that a worn finish is brought up li...

Re: Hi fellow collectors!

To: Welcome to the forum! The number of models - 150 Me: No, not 150 - getting on for 250'ish now, with the last lot - like I said 24, but when I counted how many I had listed, well it was 33 and another one I forgot about from China.

Re: Hi Fellow Collectors From Australia

Re: I don't know what your fear of Pocher cars is, Me: I think I would describe it as boredom.

Hi Fellow Collectors From Australia

I have been collecting cars for about 8 years - I remember reading somewhere about Pocher cars and decided they were too hard for me to assemble, so I would collect a few assembled by other people, more mechanically minded than me - I have 17 or 18 different 1/8 scale cars at the last count, I purch...
