About Me

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.

3 is for . . . Err . . . Less Than a Week? Bargain!

As you can't have missed if you're on the internet, the 33rd Plastic Warrior show for collectable toy soldiers and model figures is this coming Saturday in the Harlequin Suite, at the Winning Post public house (Fayre Square) and Motel (Premier Inn), in Whitton on the edge of Twickenham, south-east London.

The Map! Actually I think I've cropped it better in the past, but hey-ho! The venue is less than 2-minutes walk from Whitton railway station, well served with buses and can be approached by road from anywhere in the UK! Seriously though - It's on the A316 main-drag into London from the M3, with connections to Hounslow/Heathrow just to the North.

Google Earth - There's plenty of parking (looked at last year) but remember if you are driving, the 316 has a permanent, solid, central reservation for that whole section effectively making it one way in both directions from the Hospital Bridge Road roundabout (bottom left) to the Twickenham High Street roundabout (off the top right-hand corner), so if you are coming out of London you will need to go round and come back up, if you miss it you will have to do the whole loop down to 'Twickers' National Rugby Stadium and back up past The Stoop - home of the Harlequins.

The pub is open from eight, so you can wait in comfort if you get there early, and they serve breakfast 'till 11am, coffee all day and alcohol from eleven  'till late.

PW's page noted there is a cash-machine on site, with more facilities in Whitton village.

This is the sight that you're looking for to turn left, or at least - it is if you're in the wrong lane and bringing a lorry, otherwise look-out for the rendered, white-painted, low, brick-wall!
