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.

S is for Something New

I picked this up in Wilkinson's Basingrad four weeks ago and can't remember how much I paid for it, but I know it wasn't much or I wouldn't have bothered; maybe a couple of quid? £1:50? Something like that, and it's fun!

 
Speedy Turbo Jet Wind-up Speed Boat, I've placed a figure in it so you can see that it's fine for 54 or 60-mil figures and would make a nice rigid-raider for your Airfix SAS or Vietnam forces! They had a speedboat as well, and both came in two colour-ways.

A wind-up motor so it'll run round and around the swimming pool - until you can sink it with an elastic superhero catapult!
