Hi, great to be here!

Something about myself: I’ve been a car guy my entire life, always liked them in real life but I was never really into models. Then in 2005 my girlfriend surprised me with an AUTOart Bugatti Veyron! We still to this day have it proudly displayed in our living room. She is as much into F1 as myself, we’ve both driven on the North Schleife and she even drove a MB C AMG 63 S on Zandvoort. And of course I married her!
Last year I bought her the AUTOart MB GT-R in Green Hell Magno as a surprise. She loves that car but I have to admit it was also a small present to myself.
This reignited my interest in AUTOart models, even more so when I discovered that they will re-release the Nissan Skyline Super Silhouette, one of my all time favorite cars. I even send them an email if I was reading it correctly or if it was a typo on their site.

Since there are quite some Dutch people active on here I think this is a great place for me to hangout, talk about cars and be envious of the many collections. Thanks for having me!

Just wanted to thank everyone for their kindness and hospitality. I already bought 5 new models since I joined:

AUTOart Porsche GT1 plain gloss black (new)
Exoto Porsche 935 Standox Galaxy (new)
Exoto Porsche 934 Jägermeister #24 (new)

Pre-orders
OttoMobille Nissan Skyline R34 Mine’s
AUTOart Nissan Skyline Super Silhouette 1983

Wish list:
AUTOart Nissan R390 1998 Black or White (found it for a nice price at a good shop, but just received today the 934...)
AMR Zonda when it releases.

Never thought I would own those Exoto models, let alone brand new ones.
I’ll have to open a collection topic for some pics!
