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.

P is for Pathe and Production

A quick film of Britains Hornsey works, you see someone working on a master figure, the hollow-casting process, the speed with which the detail is painted and a brief look at plastics with pre-coloured granules at the end;

Britains Hornsey 1965 1 minute 40 seconds.

The US band is a thing to behold now, and that's a fine block of Eye's Right at the end, enjoy.

Addition; 1949
