I do not know if there are words to properly describe the level of devastation embodied in those photos I saw via internet (taken from Japan earlier today). I know that I do not possess the ability to appropriately describe what the Japanese people must be experiencing.
In the spirit of grace and kindness, I send my prayers for Japan and all those impacted by the March 11th catastrophe. I can feel the your pain deep in my heart.
Well, I started to fancy about motor racing ever since I was 10 year old boy. Remember watching Ayrton Senna won the 1988 F1 world championship in his first season driving that red & white McLaren – in those days we used to call it the Marlboro car. It had been my dream to collect my favorites miniatures race car ever since then. But it was impossible during those days without internet (online stores) connection. Plus limited choices offered at local toy shops. So, I leave it till end of last year (2007) where I started off collecting hotwheels basic car. Unfortunately I gave up the hunt after collecting the mini for some time. Then I bumped into 1/43 models collection short after that because it gives me better satisfaction - realistics. So up to date I have collected more than 200 pcs of models in 1:43 scale.
