Merry Christmas LaLD!

I hope you all have/had a wonderful holiday and all your diecast dreams are/were answered. I’m long past the point of getting the surprise diecast as a gift, so I usually either provide a list, or just get it myself. This year was all on me, so my first gift was not a diecast, but very diecast related.

Something that no one ever tells you about this hobby is that it will probably force you into another hobby: photography. I’ve resisted this for a long time, being content with point-and-shoots or my phone’s camera, but this year I finally broke down and got my first DSLR, a Nikon D3300. Getting 1/18 cars in full focus requires aperture levels that you can only get with a “real” camera. Just because the camera is better, don’t expect better pictures. I’m still a lousy photographer, but I’ve already been experimenting.

On the diecast side of things, I got a Norev BMW F11 550i Touring. I’ve wanted this ever since AmitB posted his back in September. The want list is always full, but getting this for $99 shipped helped to ease it to the front. Unexpected bonus: 1 day shipping from France to Chicago.
