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 - Rubbersaurs

I think we've had Dinorasers & Erasersaurs; so that's three now! They're not new words - they're Small Scale Worłds! I said I would; so I did . . .

. . . and now I have a herd of Tobar Styracosaurus'siziz!

I went back and got another quid's-worth of Iwako dinorasers from Hawkin's Bazaar, swapped the ridge-plates and set them to grazing with the first pair!

Putting away the various odds and sods that have come-in over the last three or four weeks I found another pencil pecking, polymer, paleo-critter. It's one of the kerthunkersaur family, but not the full-on Ankylosaurus, a Nonkylosaurus perhaps!

This one marked with a small 'China' but possibly from an older moulding/mould-tool. The rubber is similar to those cute woodland animals, dinosaurs and Baba the Elephant family given away by petrol stations in the early 1970's.

It's a form of silicon I think and makes for shite graphite-removal, preferring instead to smear it round the page!
