Hello everyone,


I am a procurement professional living in the UK, originally from Hungary. I came to study here to study at university but ended up staying here, working in the healthcare sector.

I have only started collecting scaled models about 3 weeks ago, so I am a newbie, but I tried to make as much reading as possible to familiarise myself with the different models, brands materials, etc.

I hope I can be a useful member of this forum and will be able to engage in conversation with yourselves! :)

If you are interested in my 1/18 collection, feel free to click the link below  :rolleyes:

Thank you for your lovely welcomes everyone, I already feel at home here :danke:

I have always been a petrolhead, but really developed an interest for cars at the start of my university years. I bought a camera and went to different Cars & Coffee events, carshows, etc. I visited many countries around Europe just to join events, it was a really good experience, and saw some really nice and rare cars in person. :drool5:  I could show you hundreds of pictures.. Perhaps at another time  :rolleyes:  

When it comes to cars I will want to collect, they will be cars that I like for one reason or another. For example, I bought this Mercedes AMG GT-R because a friend was give me a ride in his car, and I fell in love it it. The only difference is that was silver not red. I have another Pagani Huayra from GT Autos (will upload photos of that later to my collection topic) which I bought because I once ran around 2 miles at 5am in the morning in London just to take pictures of it. Good old carspotting days :giggle: It was gorgeous, absolutely worth the sweat.

I also ran a fairly successful Youtube channel (currently at 22k) where I mostly play Forza Horizon 4 and comment it in Hungarian.

I think that is it from the top of my head :occasion14:

Welcome from Holland. The AMG GT-R is an incredible car! And a good way to start a collection. What’s on your wishlist?

So far, there are 2 items on my wishlist that can't wait to put my hands on.

1, HotWheels Elite Ferrari 458 Italia in Rosso Corsa. I have a particularly good reason for this; I drove one around a racing circuit in England last summer. It was 15 minutes of pure happiness :yahoo:  My girlfriend's brother has also got the very same model and every time I go over their house I ask him to show me that model :bawling: the problem is they went up in value, didn't see any below £120.

2, Ford Focus RS by AUTOArt. Ever since I saw the first one in real life, I praise them. Never had the chance to drive any, but it is just soo gorgeous and I need to have one :drool5:
As far as I could tell, AUTOArt captured the details amazingly and offers really good value for money, but these are around £200 now.. :mad2:

That's all for now :danke:
