Two years ago I was diagnosed with a life altering illness and lost interest in pretty much everything. Picassa and photobucket pretty much made a mess of all the photos I had in my galleries so I basically gave up on it all. My family has helped me along in this new life journey and convinced me to get back into the things I enjoy and that includes my diecast car collection. I've taken all new photos as well as purchased and been gifted new cars and even built a diorama that I plan to photograph as soon as I get the weathering done. Im looking forward to returning to the forums and chatting with both the old and new members of this fun community.
Regards.... Mike

Thanks for the welcome guys, my old username was spanky17ab. Does anyone know when I will be able to start posting photos to a gallery ? From what I remember there was a waiting period or something like that wasn’t there ? Im really looking forward to working on my diorama this winter and will post some shots of where im at right now with it asap.

I don't know if the gallery is around anymore. But it's best to use an image hosting site such as Flickr, Postimg.cc or something like that and embed the pics in your post.

Welcome back mate.
You can also use Dropbox and just change the last part of the url to raw=1 which works everytime for me.

Welcome back Mike! :welcome:
From Germany.
I entered at DX most probably around the same time when you were starting your break.
Hope your re-vitalized interest in the hobby is a sign that you succeeded to recover from your illness!!! :occasion14:
What I've seen so far you can be proud to have such a great collection - some models that we share and many that I would love to have too... :eusa_clap:
