About Me

My photo
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.

R is for Rose Miniatures

Steady guys, they're as cold as lead and in need of a repaint, which I will attempt in the near future. These are really nice when painted well and are part of a small range of slave-girls and bathing beauties produced - presumably - when sculptors got tired of soldiery!! [Actually the Roman Slave set]. And coming in at about 26mm, quite compatible with some modern plastics (Zvezda/Italeri!!).
