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.

U is for Update - Royal American

Just blocking in the colours before all the straps, belt and normal panoply of gubbins the PBI are loaded down with is added to him.

'This week I'are be mostly using....ACRYLICS' and they seem a bit bright for the job in hand; a sweaty soldier two years on campaign in the Iberian peninsular, in the middle of a battle. Also the camera (still; Thanks Giles!) cuts straight through any thin bits! I want the trousers to end-up blacker, more like the border of the collage.
