Hello forum friends I am Nigel McKeone, f143, originally from North Eastern England I have been in Perth Autralia for 30,( how many), years. I made the move here after being persecuted by my own govt. A slot car enthusiast since 1960, and motor sport spectator from even earlier. I have settled on collecting 60s sports and Grand Prix cars with a sprinkling of various years and types thrown in as well. I served an apprenticeship as a mechanical fitter and owned cars as soon as I could afford them.My favourites were Lotus Europas. In the 70s along with friends I visited the Monaco GP for several years, but lost faith in F1 when price rises and restrictions were enforced. I fear my skills are not the best in this company, but I try with the spirit of a gentleman racer. I look forward to meeting you all sometime as I have to escape now and again to keep sane. Very best wishes to you all. Regards Nigel

Hi guys, Im paul elford - otherwise vicelfordfan ( no relation ). Love the period in F1 between late 60's and mid 70's. Never really done a full scratchbuild -only reliveries. Interested in all the bits and pieces like making wings, detailing front and rear suspensions but never had a go! I am in awe of some of the photos on here. Regards
I suspect I don't really need to introduce myself to most of the members here. In fact, I'm betting several of you will be swearing under your breath amd muttering, "I know that so-and-so all too well..."
I was terrifically honored to be asked by Chris to come a little north of the Wells hovel to do the concours judging for this year's GPdG and I had a great time. It was also great to finally meet the Beardog in person, as well as to make Jay Hardy's acquaintance.
I'll try not to be a total stranger here and also to do what I can to promote and expose this neat forum to a larger audience.
