Default Hello Everybody

I'm from the Netherlands so forgive my bad englisch.
I'm an old guy.In my teenage years was a huge fan op the series Space 1999, still am ofcourse .In 1979 i went with my parents to England for the holidays and bought myself a Dinky Freighter(all white with red cargo area).My brother bought the green Transporter.I'm a huge sf-fan.After the series Space 1999 i went over to BattleStar Galactica ,Alien and soforth.Life continued and i lost track of my beloved Eagle.Til some 3 years ago.Wandering where those items where i phoned i mother asking if she knew where both Eagle where.We never found them

Some two weeks ago i bought an used Dinky Eagle transporter and got hooked again.I was suprised to see a lot of people were still interested in them.I did two week of full research on the net and i was stunned to see that is happing in this scene.It was truly mind boggling to see what was out there especially those garage kits etc.

My plan for now is to buy old dinky's eagles refurbish them,keeping at least 3 for myself and selling the rest.Second is to have a collection of all the 12" Product Enterprises Eagle maybe even the 23 inch.

Ofcourse while doing my research i found this forum and am really i'm glad to be here.so ones again.Hello everybody !!

*Update: After reading this forum for 6 hour i learned one thing.I'm a total noob here.Sorry for that.I've to extend my research etc for at least 12 months to add something constructive here.Btw i just preordered the upcoming Eagle-1 Transporter Deluxe Edition Model Kit.

For refurbishing Dinky stuff you'll find www.model-supplies.co.uk useful for those often missing and hard to find parts. I think there is a lot of mileage in buying the old dinky toys and doing amazing things with them.

At the moment i'm bidding for an P.E. Resue Eagle-new which auction will end within 1.5 hour.The price is rather high (99 with 75 transport free of customs charges).It's pricey to imports those goods into Holland.We see what happens.

Ha! Another Dutchguy found his way to this forum! Welkom Interceptor! I have bought all the P.E.-diecast (and an 23 inch Eagle) in time, so if you ever want to see them, you're welcome.
