Just found this place searching around Google for Diorama build tips/ideas.

I've been collecting hot wheels since I was around 10 so roughly 1990. I had a few thousand at one point, but back in early 2000's I donated most of them to toy drives and other children's hospitals etc.

With the hopes of having a boy I saved a few to eventually give to him. Now that i actually have a son and hes just about 4, he's really into them so we have started collecting again. Mostly hot wheels, but I like the M2 cars and Tomica as well.

I started posting his cars to an instagram account for fun @nwcdiecast and also to keep an online account of what he has. Sounded like fun, but now I want to maybe make some small dioramas for take a few cool pics here and there.

Look forward to checking out the forum.
