About Me

My photo
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.

News, Views Etc...Robin Hood Update and Other Bits...

Robin Hood Update

I've added the images needed to the Robin Hood post; Here

As they were part of another of the cancelled book projects, there will be more Deetail Knight stuff appearing in the next few days, it's mostly an exercise in box-ticking as it's not rare, but strangely the more modern (and less rare) stuff always gets the most hits!

Other Bits

The usual round-up of cultural and other toy soldier related links from around the web. Starting with more Prieser (or - these days - possibly Noch?) figures as extras in artworks;

Kendal Murray

Then nut-cracker soldier Washi Tape...whatever that is [Stickers!];

A Cherry on Top

Some exquisite Architectural Modelling from Tom Eichenberger and a deliverable SEAL-team from Dominator Fireworks - how cool is that? There are other similar 'cakes' out there...

If you find odd placements of toy soldiers, or the toy soldier theme out there on the Wibbly Wobbly Way, let me know and I'll share it with the wider readership.
