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.

C is for Charben's Chaps in Ckhaki!

Some hollow-cast lot I shot on Adrian's stall about three years ago with half a mind on the Khaki Infantry page (they're the wrong poses) and half-a mind on a comparison with the plastics in storage, obviously the storage ones are still there, which I didn't think they would still be now, several years ago, so let's look at them 'as is'.

More poses than the plastics and the MG has the toy-like addition of a novelty matchstick-firing mechanism. With three headdress types to collect and various plastic paint-versions, these Carbens combat types would make a nice sub-collection/display.

It's a box-ticker really Jan, but yes - they're nice and 'clean'
