Welcome to the mad house. I am the only sane one here. They are watching us. Be careful of Smeg he has the keys to the cells! :D

Seriously it's great to have another new member and I'm looking forward to seeing some of your models.

Don’t mind David - just don’t feed him any scraps or make direct eye contact. It’ll only encourage him.

Welcome! Great to have you here and I look forward to seeing your work.

Sad what post-traumatic modelling disorder does to Spurs' supporters in Devon. Definitely locking your cell tonight, David. It's back to the 22,000-volt shock therapy come Monday. :P

Actually, there probably is a little insanity here and there in the forum, but it's all good natured. We old timers have been delighted by the surge in membership this year from all corners of the globe. Needless to say, we can't wait to see some of your work and, if you like, join in the current year-long Group Build covering everything from the year 1940. ;)

Glad to see another diecast collector ....
Are there any "small" manufacturers of diecast in Canada other than the usual manufacturers (Corgi and others)?

Im not aware of any Canadian manufaturers of 1/144 except True North which I think old Glory sells now?
