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.

O is for Oak Tree

One of the largest trees in the Britains range and often seen in the background of war games in the old books on the subject, like all the Britains trees it was a better scale size for 20-25mm stuff than the 54mm it was ostensibly made for.

The main component sets: A base, main trunk, branches and foliage, due to the design, all the parts are polyethylene.

Trunk with branches added at random, a very well thought-out design means that you can pretty-much place any of the branches anywhere on the receiving spigots and after foliage is added they don't really foul each-other.

Looks like an oak-tree to me!
