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.

H is for How Many Officers?

When we looked at the figures from Sky Birds Here I commented that I didn't know which of the officers with swagger-stick were factory paint and which weren't...the answer seems to be most of them where!


In fact one boxed-set had six of them all with differences, some very subtle. Otherwise just a quick post to show a couple of boxed sets I photographed a while ago and keep meaning to blog but a lot of real-world shite has rather kept me from blogger this year...Hey-Ho! Obviously one of the figures is damaged and may not be the one supposed to occupy that slot, but I think it's right?


The other set, pilots and ground-crew with a very late-WWI / inter-war years look to them. The lose figures are not rare, but sets in this condition are like piles of rocking-horse shit on the summit of Everest!

Nice!...as they say in all the best Jazz clubs...apparently!
