Diecast Zone Board Member & Visionary
Tony Perrone is one of the pillars of the Diecast Zone.
We created the Bulletin Boad and he invented what a forum moderator should be and do.
We created model reviews and he showed how compelling a model review could be. Tony wrote in a voice that captured the rapture in which he held a model (what is a Thrillometer, anyway?). And with great subtlety, he could share his disappointment without dispensing gloom. The common thread, whether thumbs up or thumbs down, is his love of the hobby and the discerning eye of the collector.
He has been a Zone board member from the day we recognized we need a board.
We bestow this honor on Tony because he has succeeded in showing us how collectors use this hobby as a form of personal expression and a satisfying communion with others.
