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.

B is for Box-ticking - WWII Russians - Starlux

Heading home (actually we're going East again next), we reach France, were I can only show you a set of figures who appeared on the blog eight or nine years ago! It doesn't happen often, but occasionally things will appear more than once without the excuse of a follow-up or additions!

54mm Figures; 54mm Russians; 54mm Toy Soldiers; Starlux 54mm Troops; Starlux Russian Infantry; Starlux Russian Toy Soldiers; Starlux Soviet Infantry; Starlux Soviet Russians; Starlux Toy Soldiers; Small Scale World; smallscaleworld.blogspot.com; Vintage Plastic Figures; Vintage Plastic Soldiers; Vintage Plastic Toys; Vintage Russian Infantry; Vintage Toy Figures; Vintage Toy Soldiers; WWII Plastic Toy Figures; WWII Russian Infantry; WWII Toy Soldiers;
Starlux were very clever with their set, producing 5 in summer dress, including a nice female sniper, officer and three troops, along with five in winter dress who include a sneaky-looking NCO who could be a commissar, a goose-stepping sentry for anyone wanting to model some modernist statuary, or a mausoleum, and an office who looks more like a 'White Russian' Imperialist, shooting a Commie'-Bolshie'-people's-Soviet-somebody in the back of the head? . . . Or; am I reading too-much into it?!
