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.

Q is for Question Time - Rhine Find, Saved from the Oceans!

Reader Sylvia found this in the silt of the River Rhine and asked after it, while I'm sure I have some flats with similar two-part bases (with heavy machine-tooling marks), I can't even picture them at the moment (with my eyes shut - which usually works), so does anyone recognise it?

Semi-flat frog musician, who I suspect is polyethylene; to have retained all the guitar-string tighteners on it's way down the Rhine? Were there some Italian toy soldiers with those bases? Anyway, if you recognise this, Sylvia would love to know more about it . . . premium?
