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

T is for Truck - Prolog; The Real Things

Nothing beats the real thing, all taken at War and Peace - Beltring, last Summer

Front and rear three-quarter views of the same wagon. GMC

A very clean hard-top with the standard trailer. Chevy or Studebaker?

Nice shot showing the difference between soft and hard-top cabs on the same manufacturers chassis. Mack's?

This has the most potential for a conversion project, it's an International Fire Tender.
