I must have been about six or seven years old. I had a collection of odd's and ends of Airfix, Timpo and the like and a few painted Britains plastics (more on them later). One evening a lady came to the house, no idea who she was and no one remembers to this day. She had with her a box and said that her son didn't want these things anymore and so she brought them round for me. My parents decided I had been good enough to have the things there and then. Upon opening I found it was full of more Airfix, Timpo and various other makes, it doubled my collection there and then and was one of the best presents I ever received. From then on there was no turning back!
