Well.... I've been thinking very hard the last few weeks and have come to the conclusion that my model collecting and related subjects is coming to an end.

With my second child on the way and family needing me more than ever my hobby here is starting to get in the way, and to say the least , the wife isnt very happy with me atm. So.. Im gunna be selling off pretty much every model i have bar 2-3 of them which i'll probably store away as a small investment for along way off down the track.

Anyways, i hope to be able to drop in from time to time and say hello now and then. This place has been great to say the least, and maybe years down the track when im well on my way to being old and senile :giggle , i may think about taking this up again. Winding down now .....

Cheers everyone, for the great times !

Over and out for time being...

Domin8..

P.S. For those of you that don't know.. my real name is Stanislaw, but everyone calls me Stach for short.. sounds like Stush when spoken :happy

Hey Stach! First off, congrats on your second bambino coming along!! :cheers :cheers I've got two kids myself so I can relate to what it is to re-arrange priorities based on the family's needs. Kids aren't cheap to raise these days. I do tip my hat off to you for knowing what the proper priorities are given your "life stage". At the same time, it's with much regret that I read in your post that you won't be able to come here as much as before. You'll be much missed by everyone here. I've really enjoyed your enthusiasm for diecasts, banner designs and modifying cars (1:1). Please accept my best wishes to you & your growing family!! :cheers :cheers

Sorry to see you go but I for one can fully understand that commitments at home have to take priority. I commend you on making this decision as the greatest quality time in life is that which you share with your family and loved ones.

I had a discussion with my GF about the time that I was spending here, and understood completely how she felt that she was coming in second at times......as some might have noticed my time spent here had slowed down a touch.

I for one really hope that you can continue visiting us, and thank you for all that you have given to DX and all of our members.

Please don't be a stranger :cheers :cheers :cheers

Stach,

Sorry to read of this, but I take comfort knowing your parting ways with all your pieces for a good cause. No model could replace the joy of a family and your decision tells me you know of this. Priorities change in life and there certainly isn't anything wrong with that.

You immediately became a big part of DX when you first logged on, that will certainly not be forgotten. Your always welcome here, please don't become a stranger.

Funny thing about all of this, not more than 24 hours ago I mentioned how the the good members seem to come and go at various points.

Best wishes and congrats on the new bundle of joy that awaits you.

I won't say good bye, as I know you will stop in every now and then.

You've got my personal pm, send me a line or two anytime :cheers

Best of luck with the new baby and congrats!

So sorry to see you stepping back but at the same time I am very happy for you and your decision :cheers

You are doing the right thing!
Diecast is just something to do with your extra time.
Lord knows that I have been guilty of spending to much time on it as well.

Stach, I have always enjoyed your posts and your demeanor and I know you are a great guy and this only proves it.
Now go be with your family and don't be shy about stopping in to say high!

All hail to the Banner King :cheers

D8, I'm sorry to hear about your collection, but I'm happy to hear about your son. Family has to come first, always, so I can totally understand where you're standing right now. :cheers

Still, is there not a way to keep your collection as it is right now (maybe selling only your least desirable models? I ask that because maybe in the future you'll be able to get back to the hobby again. But a man has to do what a man has to do, so I understand. For whatever path you choose I wish you luck. God bless. :cheers.

You know, my hobby has helped me a lot to maintain a healthy relationship with my family. This is because I never let the diecast collecting hobby get in the way of my priorities in life. That is why I don't even have 300 posts yet here, and I've been around since the very beginning. The hobby helps me to stay in the house (I don't like bars or pubs anyway) so I focus my free time on things to do around the house, talking diecast with you guys, maintaining my diecast cars website or spending time with the kids.

One small issue I have is that I don't have a lot of room, so many of my models are stashed in carton boxes in my personal closet. I don't take up any other valuable room in the house to store boxes of models. That wound really hurt my relationship with my wife since she is very picky with order in the house.

I never take the money for the bills and savings to buy diecast. That is a major sin in my house. We pay ourselves first, pay the bills, save the minimum established for savings, and THEN I consider buying diecast.

I am in for the long term. And I know my priorities. Time is too valuable to waste and once gone, it never comes back. So every minute I spend in the diecast hobby has been well spent, because I make sure everything else has been taken care of. I really regret when a fellow collector has to quit the hobby because of family issues. It does not have to come to that.

I don't mean to be rude but sometimes when an Xchange member makes 5,000 or 7,000 or 10,000 posts, we congratulate him and and it is a big deal here, or so it seems, but what comes to my mind is: gosh, if I had 10,000 posts here my personal life would probably be a total mess. That is MY own particular case, I am not generalizing and I know every case is different. Some people probably have a lot more time than I do, or are much richer, or whatever.

Sorry if I upset anyone, but this is something we never talk about, maybe we should.

I wish you the best Domino, and congrats on your new arrival.
