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.

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!!!
