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.

F is for Follow-up - Blow Moulded Cart Horse

Just a quick follow-up to the other day'spost; showing that while a perfect 54mm/1:32nd scale and similar to Britains 'heavy' . . .

. . . the flocked HCF draft horse isn't exactly the same as the Britains one either (we looked at the Timpo version last time), but seems to be a pose of its own (unless you know better?) with a prouder head and more-bent legs. I took the opportunity to look - properly - for signs of a tail, or signs of a an ex-tail's glue or pin hole, there isn't any; so it's fair to assume he was docked from birth!
