Info Ahoy
#1

Ahoy!
I’m Tom 45 years old and I have 4 lovely daughters 
I started with slot when I got a set at early age from Santa Claus, who didn’t have a set when they were kids. ?
I had my first decent set about 15 years ago and started to collect cars and made a permanent track at that time. 
Sold everything a few years later. 
Got into modeltrains, rc cars, but the slotcars kept interesting me. 
About a year ago I placed an advert to sell one of my rc cars, a guy responded if I maybe was interested in a swap, my car against a slotcar set and a big box of extra track......
So I got back into slotcars. 
I have a big attic and the planning was to build a permanent track, not to big, and as a former modeltrain guy I wanted to build it as realistic as possible. 
Also the cars have to look as realistic possible, I learned myself to weather in my train period. 
So I tried it on my cars, I call it “the last lap look “
Recently I started to make slotcars out of static models as I found a 1/32 VW bus in a recycle shop nearby. 
So I’m really loving this hobby, it’s relaxing and a pure pleasure for me to build, customise and working on the cars and the layout. 
What more does a man need
