Remember when We did this?
Posted 07 February 2010 - 03:39 PM
One thought that I had was the creation of two teams, one East-bound, the other West-bound. After taking volunteers, and charting the route, both cars would leave the central point on the same day, and we'd see when they crossed, and which team could get it back first. Each car would have to touch each major continent at least once, and we could give "bonus" credit for touching sub-continents (know anyone in Antarctica?).
Any interest out there http://www.diecastxc...tyle_emoticons/default/questionmark.gif

It was fun once, I don't see any reasons to do it again, anyway, I've shown all I had to in the first run ... so if it works, I'll let the model go visit elsewhere!

Reason why 1:43 scale cars aren't that popular because most people including me(sorry it I offend) consider them toys and not Collectable model cars. .
Should you collect 1:43?
In my opinion, no if you can afford 1:18 models. First of all, most people will think of them as toys, while 1:18 models can look as something classy if you have a few.

Well Im still waiting for the check from the mini
Posted 08 February 2010 - 12:47 PM
... and since I took the Mini in Quebec, Montreal, New York City & Varadero (Cuba) ... my check's suppose to be 4 times bigger!
But since we know who was in charge of it, and he's here anymore, I guess I have to stop waiting ...

Where is it written that the more diecast $$$ equals a better diecast?

I joined this forum after that thing went around, but I read through that thread a couple of months ago and thought this was just the coolest thing.
We should try to find a smallish lightish car to keep postage down. It can be quite expensive sending a model halfway around the world.

Agree. But then you would not want to pass the model half way across the globe at one go. You'd do that in stages and pass it to the nearest person to your location. No? That should keep the shipping cost low and DX does not need to come out with a lot of money reimbursing members.

I was reading on that other thread that by luck, one member got the model twice, and both times had to ship it out of the country.
How do we dictate who ships the model out of the country. IE, if it starts in the United States and goes to four other members in the US, and then the next one is France, which of those US members gets to ship it to France, etc?
