About Me

My photo
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.

R is for Royalist Redoubt!

The 'citadel' gatehouse, one of the three or four main keeps in the Basing House complex and a lovely model, around 1:72nd scale, but again - only an interpretation due to the destruction at the time and lack of contemporary images. Also a 'Lobster's' cuirass in the background!

That's it, three pictures; fighting flash and reflection! Model made by Boyd Hill in 2009.
