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.

R is for Road Roller

Apropos a comment I left on Geoff's Superhero's blog;

The slightly 'futuristic' (or engine-less/air-powered), dime-store/pocket-money, road-roller from Irwin, although it has a steam-stack! In the 1950's the future was clearly steam-punk! If you followed the link to Geoff's blog, you'll know what a Harley Davidson Electra-Glide was going to look-like in the future! Doh!

I'm afraid these are a couple of the first 'test' shots I ever took on a digital camera back in 2007, so they are low-res as I hadn't sussed the tulip-function out!
