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.

U is for Unknown; Metal Flats

Hard to say much about these, they look like home-casts of the kind Agasee* carried, but Brian (Berke) reckons they are harder, possibly die-cast?

They were meant to follow this morning's post and I was going to collage them into a couple of images, but running short of time I'll just load them all 'as is' in the hope someone can add something?

* Lots of hobby companies/shops offered the same basic range of home-casting moulds for the home-hobbyist to cast figures from in the early half of the 20th Century, but the old guard at the BMSS collated a lot of information on Agasee and the multi-page photocopy of their efforts used to be relatively easy to acquire, so I tend to use them as a 'name' in these situations, the swan seen here - for instance - is, I'm sure, in the Agasee catalogue?

 Can anyone help Brian with a bit more information on these? As you can see they are a reasonable 54mm. and semi-flat or 'demi-ronde'.
