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.

J is for Just as cool as the others!

I don't know if you remember the edible Daleks we had up here a while ago (Exterminate us, exterminate us!), but here is another take on the edible figure 'sub-genre', these are currently being sold reduced in BP petrol stations ('Filling' or 'Service' stations, to out of UK readers), made by Maynards and included in the Sports Mix.

Yes - I know is a bit off the wall, and they aren't very realistic, but think about it...cut them off the backing-lump with a craft knife, seal them with super-glue (for rigidity) and then PVA/wood-glue and give them the black undercoat/dry-brush paint technique and you could fill a cycle-rack in one of the darker corners of you layout without anyone spotting what they really were, especially if you put a Merit, Prieser or Airfix bike at the front of the row!

And the waste tastes good (the hard-gum not the super-glue!). The man from Rovex, he say; "You looking at my bike?!"
