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.

B is for Bit and Pieces

Another lazy post, a few more images from the archive, time waits for no man and I've been doing other things today!

First up a couple of 40mm Elastolin Roman Cavalry, my favorite sculpts from this manufacturer, no matter how 'inaccurate' the rivet counters may hold them, they were toys - in their day - and bloody good ones!

Montaplex Sioux Indians from Spain, the packet looking as old as it is, the figure sprues looking like they left a plastics factory in Kent at six o'clock this morning! Airfix piracy's of course!

Hong Kong Bendy Toys of Cowboys and Indians, these are about 60mm, and were sold flattish, to get them all in the box.

Hat variations on the Britains 'Detail' Royal Canadian Mounted police (RCMP).
