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. I will 'bite the hand that feeds' to remind it why it feeds.

S is for Starlux

The best known of the French producers, these are a few shots of 54mm civilian figures I took a while ago.

These are all factory painted, and were to go with model farm products, as per Britains here in the UK. Interestingly these were not issued in the smaller scales like other Starlux civil stuff.

Paint variations, the one front right, may be (and I stress 'May' be) from a higher priced 'Lux' range, the rest are 'Choc'; the budget range.

Some more poses, I don't collect 54mm (I stop at 50mm) although I think I soon will just to complete the picture as it were, vis-a-vis toy soldier collecting, but in the meantime; will post larger bits form time to time, if someone asks, or I like the items!
