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.

News, views etc...Links & Stuff

I had a bit of a session this afternoon, moving a few of the less 'toy soldiery' or more esoteric blog-links over to the Other Collectables blog, and adding a couple of new ones here, both on 1980's vinyl smallies. I've also put a nice mosaic of Schwimmwagen detail shots on the same blog, which may be of use to WWII modelers.

Sorry for the lack of posts this last couple of months, but real-world stuff is getting in the way of the internet bubble activities at the moment so just bare with me, likewise I tried to catch up with eMails and things today, but if I've forgotten you, drop me a new line!!
