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.

H is for Hong Kong, Part 3 - CM, CMV, HK

Again in this last group there are similarities and differences that may or may not indicate links?

Three cowboys from 'CM' which I suspect is the same company as CMV, with a close-up of the base marking; an M contained withing a larger C.

CMV copies of the Britains Herald American Civil War figures, Marx Pirates and more Britains Cowboys, again with a base-mark close-up. The pirates don't have the release-pin holes the other two examples do.

HK copies of Timpo 8th Army along with Britains American Civil War figures and Cowboys. A comparison with a Timpo original radio operator reveals how much smaller these copies of copies ended up!

The way the HK is placed within the circle could link it to CM, but the use of a circle in trademarks is so common that it isn't much of a link.
