As we have a lot of members with different backgrounds, model preferences and experience in the hobby. I wanted to get a feel of how many of each dow e have on board.

I know from a previous poll, we seem to have experience factors ranging from all spectrums.

I would consider myself an amateur/novice still as there is alays something to learn and you see some thing and learn something everyday in this hobby.

Glad to know we have some great diecast minds around here :cheers

Amatuer or novice. Only been in the hobby like 2 years, which is why I have less than 40 1:18s.

Heck, in the grand scheme of things, I'd be a novice. If I only referred to Ferrari diecasts, I'd be a slight step above that.

I'd consider myself between amateur and novice. As my focus is largely on racers (past & present), my knowledge base is really pretty narrow. Moreover, I've only been in the hobby seriously for about a year. I think when I eventually learn more about things like (1) history of some diecast manufacturers and (2) information about the diecast industry to include manufacturing processes, marketing, etc., then I **might** be up at the level of an amateur.

I was thinking "expert" as I know alot about these models and I've been collecting them for nearly 8 years, but I chose between amateur and expert as I think I would have to be employed in the industry to reach the "expert" stage! :cheers

I would LOVE to consider myself between an amateur and an expert, but in all honesty I'm just an amateur. I don't have experience with Exotos or the like. That's a dent in the ol' resume.

How do I rate myself??? I'd say I'm pretty hot!! Maybe a 9 or 10! :lol

All kidding aside, been in the hobby about 3 years now and still learning everyday!!! I'm in the amateur ranking I'd say...

:cheers

I'd be an amateur with general knowledge of the diecast world.

I reckon if someone has a partcular theme such as Le Mans then they would move up in the ranking due to specialised knowledge and the like.

:cheers

My 9 y.o. daughter is an expert in EVERYTHING!! Just ask her :lol
