Hi Dave here 63 yrs young.

I'm more of a modeller than a diecast collector but I do have some diecasts.

1/18 Jada Triumph Stag
1/18 Autoart Jaguar XJ13
1/12 Tamiya Ferrari 288GTO, F50 and Enzo
1/12 Kyosho Ferrari F40
1/8 Pocher Ferrari Testarossa Spider

I have painted and rebuilt the Stag model as a model of my own car. I need to replace the glass on the model as the existing one does not appear to be UV stabilised and has fogged.

The Tamiya and Kyosho models are stunning in their detail

On the modelling front Tamiya is my preferred kits and subjects vary from cars, F1, aircraft, Star Trek and others in various scales but mainly larger scales now.
I also have some Pocher models.

I plan to live forever in order to finish my builds.

I came to this site in the hope of finding a 1/18 Kia Stinger model so I could rebuild one as my yellow car so it anyone decides to thin their collection here I am.

Need to find my way around the site but intend to be here for a while.

Cheers

Hi Jamie, Thanks for the welcome. I'm north of Auckland near Helensville. As far as I know the leading shop in Christchurch is Acorn Models https://www.acornmodels.co.nz/ . Hope you enjoy your stay. Are you emigrating.?

Unfortunately not emigrating, just a visit.  From what I've heard, your government is a billion times better than the UK's, so emigration right now is very appealing!  I'll be climbing mountains so not sure how much time I'll have for diecast shopping, but I'll hopefully get into Christchurch for a wander.
