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 Kool Kraz Krushes Kremlin's Kronies!

Continuing our look at the output of Ukrainians' Collectable Paper Soldiers, we arrive at the mighty Kraz troop-carrier/GS truck, which came with some Field Operation special troops on parade, but this was no Monday morning OC's Muster Parade, rather they were having a last-minute kit-check before heading-off on operations.

With at least five pose variations they made a decent line-up, dwarfed by their waiting limousine, and clearly in summer uniform or 'shirt-sleeve order', they carry all the paraphernalia (or full 'panoply'!) of modern internal security (IS) forces.

Contemplating 'the ride' . . .

"Big wheels!"

"Yehp!"

"Big cab!"

"Yehp!"

"Nice little window!"

"Hmmmmm . . . "

Each set came with an instruction sheet that - while fully annotated - had such clear graphics the blurb was all but unnecessary.
