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.

P is for Picasa Clearance - Matchbox WWII British Commandos

Took these in 2013, so well over-due for their Blog appearance! Bit of a box-ticker, but it'll all be here one day!

A couple of colour variations; with a washy, apple-green paddler and a pale, greyish, olive-drab boat.

Note the 'Spruletts' on the right-hand figure, in a mint set they all should have one or two of them.

Baseless and prone figures, I'm missing the ladder (and possibly a couple of figures?) but I only started collecting the large scale nine-years ago! And I think you'll find the small-scale set in/from the tag-list to which these have now been added - box ticked!
