About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 51-year-old Aspergic CAD-Monkey. Sardonic, cynical and with the political leanings of a social reformer, I’m also a toy and model figure collector, particularly interested in the history of plastics and plastic toys. Other interests are history, current affairs, modern art, and architecture, gardening and natural history. I love plain chocolate, fireworks and trees but I don’t hug them, I do hug kittens. I hate ignorance, when it can be avoided, so I hate the 'educational' establishment and pity the millions they’ve failed with teaching-to-test and rote 'learning' and I hate the short-sighted stupidity of the entire ruling/industrial elite, with their planet destroying fascism and added “buy-one-get-one-free”. I also have no time for fools and little time for the false crap we're all supposed to pretend we haven't noticed, or the games we're supposed to play.

J is for Jordan

Jordan are a little company who provided scenic enhancers for model railways, or; Railroads, given that they are an American company producing wagons and the like for HO/OO layouts, particularly the Old West period

I am pretty sure that I have some of the wagon kits in little white boxes somewhere, but I will deal with those when I unpack them!! I do remember that they have no horses (lots of very fine parts/strips/rods but no horses), so you had to buy the horses separately...good marketing tool/model but annoying for the buyer, you can list the wagon kits at a cheap price then bump the cost of the order back up with horse packs!!!!

Known as 'Highway Miniatures' these images are of set B-2. There is no sign of the harness, but as it's an old kit I don't want to open it and I suspect the harness in wrapped-up in the instruction sheet. The two horses are injection moulded polystyrene in halves, and only the one pose.
