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 Supreme/SP Toys, Part 3 - Articulated Transport

The various cab-units, The standard cabs are just civil models in military colours while the half-tracked cabs are quite Gerry Anderson!

The half-tracks pull the three smaller rocket carriers in the foreground, the 'Big-Rigs' tow the TEL's (Transporter/Erector/Launcher) at the back, and other designs shown below. It has to be said the TEL's seem to be carrying SCUD's in US markings! But a quick paint job would turn them into nice Iranian or North Korean equipment or even the fabled Iraqi WMD's!

The other trailers I currently know of, there may well be others, and again I don't know for sure which came in both Desert and temperate schemes and which were only issued in one colour variant?

Fully loaded and ready to hit the Basra-Kuwait city highway! Most of these would be equally at home with a bright coloured re-paint and a job to do on a model railway!
