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.

C is for Clarification or Correction

In the Blue Box farm post the other day I stated that the blow-moulded rock formation was stolen from Starlux, but on Saturday at the Birmingham Toy Soldier Show, this turned-up, and it's not Starlux!

It is - in fact - Elastolin by Hausser, and a composition piece aimed at 70mm figures from the 1930's/50's. This doesn't mean there wasn't a similar Starlux piece, but I think this may be the piece I was thinking of, so here delivered for a full comparison!
