Thomas lives about 20km south
of the Estering Circuit (Buxtehude) and is a regular visitor of the
RX-happenings since the 70ies. Within the last 5 years the visits have
been extended to the neighbour countries such as Denmark, Belgium and
the Netherlands. For some years now Thomas has further on discovered
the joy of building rallycross cars in model size (Scale 1:18), which
is a result of his long year love for the motorsport as well as his
This way over the years Thomas has built himself quite a collection
of model cars.
All his models are on a scale of 1:18. And although his collection had
been originally intended only for his own living room, by now his models
can be found at some RX-drivers as well as at some similar 'infected'
fans of the RX-'Virus'. The collection mainly offer Division 1 cars
of the German / Danish and the European Championship, but also has some
spectacular Division 1A cars as well as some exotic cars of the German
Division 4 and the Super National cars.
After putting the models to pieces at first the are being sandblasted,
as next thing necessary modifications at the (car-)body are made. By
using the airbrush-technique the new colours are being put on the model.
Once works are done, self-made stickers come on the cars, with a similar
technique like they use for the real cars of the RX-drivers.
