About Me

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.

News. Views etc...Briefly ...

I'm having a lazy day or two! I have just added a few pictures over on the Airfix Blog (HO/OO Tarzan, Farm, German Para's, Luftwaffe Ground Crew and Washington's Army posts) but as they all still need blurb and the whole blog seems to be on my mental back-burner it's not exactly earth-shattering stuff!


There is a nice group of posts taking shape here in the background and I'll schedule something for tomorrow before I leave, meanwhile and while I'm here . . .

. . . it's less then three months now!

Two of my all time favourite figures on the right. (My right, their left, the Marx ones)

Glad you liked it Ross, I was just throwing an old scan up to 'enhance' the boring post! I think this is a colour version of an old B&W
One-inch Warrior article?

I have an un-unpacked (mint!) set somewhere, but I think it may be in storage, I know I have some lose forts here as I've blogged them, and while I have lots of lose figures I'm not sure I've got all of them in both colours, but I'll see what I can do about a post on them!
