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.

G is for Greyshaw

Greyshaw Incorporated of Atlanta, Georgia to be precise...and that's just about all I can tell you about them.

Carded, two 1950's pulp sci-fi dime-store space-car-ship things...with their wheels outside the aerodynamic fairings! Hard to tell if they are polystyrene or an earlier cellulose/phenolic resin? Like the Lido ones we looked at the other day, they can tow each other round the carpet or that lovely cold 1950's linoleum!

They're nice aren't they?
