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.

S is for Supreme/SP Toys, Part 4 - Armoured Engineering

My favorites from the Supreme stable are the three engineering variants on a rather generic chassis with dozer-blade...

An extending shovel/back-hoe and long-reach crane both fold up nicely for travel, while the gloss, puke-green road-roller is clearly an afterthought taken from the civil construction sets!

The Bridge-layer is a hell of a piece of kit from a HK/China producer, especially one selling at pocket-money prices. Fully working and far more robust than the Roco one, every modern army should have one!
