About Me: The story
Who am I?
My name is Roland Kieboom. At the moment I'm 31 years old and living
in the great city of 's-Hertogenbosch (also known as Den Bosch; about 134,000 inhabitants) in the southern
part of the Netherlands.
I used to be a student at the University of Technology in Eindhoven (Hometown
of Philips Electronics and the fifth city of the Netherlands(about 200,000
inhabitants) which is also situated in the south of the Netherlands).
My subject was called Industrial Engineering & Management Science.
I have graduated from Uni in 2006 by doing a graduation project at a senior living facility on my speciality logistics
Why this site?
In 1989 I bought a Bburago 1/43 Ferrari F40, when I visited the UK.
I bought this one because it was only £0.99 (about $1.50 at that
the time and I think it'll be about the same nowadays)
The same vacation I bought a 1/43 Ferrari Testarossa in black. I suddenly
was hooked on BBurago.
In the next couple of years I tried to collect as many Bburago
Ferraris as possible. But at a certain moment I had collected all Bburago
Ferraris. So I bought some different Ferrari's of a different make, but
with less satisfactory (exceptions: UT models and Anson).
In 1998 I started to collect all 1/43 models and in 1999, after
opening this page, I also started to collect 1/18 Kits with lots of satisfactory.
At the moment all 1/43's take up all my space
