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.

Very nice Snowman!
We did one called Tintin and a little "Milou" !

Maverick Collecting said...

Hi Sam...if your Milou is the one we call 'Snowy' - a very apt use of the material!!!

Maverick Collecting said...

Sam - look forward to seeing it!

Bill - He looks even worse now that he's got a large crack across his thighs and a gaping hole where his mouth was...and his head is tipping in a slightly psychotic manner!

Snowy the Snowman is dying...I've taken about three pictures of him tonight, but I must go to bed as I have to go to London tomorrow, but one arm is nearly gone, he's lost an eye, and his legs are several inches from his hips now...it's very sad!!!
