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.

K is for Karded Ker'nights!

This would be a box-ticker if we had a maker, but we don't, just People's Plastic Production Plant . . . [Insert number of your own choice here!] . . . Probably! So it'll just be a general interest post.

'Medieval Knights' 1 ruble and 40 kopeks are the only information on the card and thanks go to Nazar Marchenko for translating the difficult bit of that for us. Five knights in front of a fort, carded, that's it!

You want more? The one on the left has been lifted from Dulcop, the chap next to him looks a bit Britains Deetail, and the forth has shades of 1st series Timpo running legs (reversed) - I'm sure that the other two could be tied to other Western figures if I had enough knowledge; is the third from a Reamsa Turk?

Seen before - Robin Hood Posts - Sorry!

No...They're all actually taken from Dulcop, who were themselves influenced by the other makers! Slightly smaller than the originals as well at about 50mm against 54-mil. I like them!
