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.

B is for Baby Boarders

News, Views... was a bit of a 'thin gruel' today, so here's a bonus post, courtesy of Mike Harding, who came sidling up to me at a show a couple of years ago like a drug dealer and murmured "Can I interest you in some Gemodels  skateboarders, Hugh?"

And like the polymer addict I am - I said "Oohh-Yes!" He went off and came back seconds later with these three jelly-beans, too tempting they were, and now shared with you!

Late Gem for Culpitt's (Gem catalogue code SP19), they share the plastic colours of the rock band and late-production footballers, so yellow, pale blue and brown may be out there to track-down?

They are smaller than the current Toy Boarders from AJ's but would still look good next to them as younger kids.
