About Me

My photo
No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 58-year-old Aspergic gardening 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.

H is for How They Come In - Chris - December '21 - 2 of 2

So continuing from where we left off last night . . .

Mixed small-scale horses and Wild West stuff around the 30-40mm rage, three Minimodels Indians up top, they've lost their lances, but even when new they were often missing, damaged or short-shot, so one day maybe a small conversion/modelling project there?

Down the right-hand side we have horses from Kinder, Lledo and the Revell/Lifelike et al stage-coach, with a wooden Erzgebirge one, a small medieval one, possibly from those odd Blue Box micro-sets from the turn of the Century and a smashed-up Rocco one.

You often find these in bags of bits, due to their rarity people tend to keep the bits together, and enough bags of bits might produce a cobble'able-together one for a photo one day, so they all go in the box! And a cake dec' Indian!

Some other Erzgebirge bits, including what I think is meant to be a rabbit hutch? Three small novelties from gum-ball capsule-toy machines I think, a small semi-flat deer (should have shot it with the other three in the previous post!), and ice-cream man (premium?) and an anodised Rat Fink!

The pig is a hollow/two-part polystyrene affair, rather ice, but large and possibly from a farm vehicle? The preying child/Putti/angel might be a cake decoration, but is - I suspect - from a larger nativity scene?

The Marx Dinseykin 101 Dalmatian isn't broken; it's sort of scratching itself with the other paws? New to me and I'm getting closer to a full set of them, Puppy in my Pocket is the origin of the brown dude I think, while the poultry turned-out to be from a Hubley (or copy) farm truck of the larger-scale 'Tonka' type.

Only a couple of paratroopers in the December lot, but both interesting/new colours, so all grist to the mill and - note to self - I must get on with that page! Slightly out of focus - sorry!

Seated/plug-in vehicle accessory fellah's; the soldier on the left is new to me, and seems to be based, or part-based on the Tri-Ang Minic amphibious lorry crew? Theo van der Werden explained all the Tudor Rose/Poplar firefighters to me, and while I haven't got them to hand, I do have the notes for when we get them all on one page and make a final sense of them all!

Tractor-driver is a post Blue Box copy of an ex-Corgi driver I think, racing driver could be from anywhere, I have dozens and dozens of them and red, blue or black helmets are as common as unpainted, so making sense of them will be a major job one day, but I'm saving lots of eBay images in a folder to have a go! The little torso is from a racing 'soap box' cart, Hong Kong after Manurba or Siku or someone similar!

Kinder; we looked at the spacemen the other day, and I have another cowboy somewhere, but look at these two - a Mexican and a Sheriff! Same head, with different hats, bodies and legs, I think they were around in the 1990/2000's?

Smallies, clockwise from top left; two Micromachines to compare base-marks with the others, another Galoob; Action Fleet mini-action figure, Marx Miniature Masterpiece Charge of the Light Brigade figure and Blue Box resistance figter, Airfix RAF Recovery Set outrider, Minitanks Russian AFV crewman (sans arms!) and two Tri-ang Motorway figures, all good stuff!

Finishing off with the odd trio! A Mrs Noah, a tad play-worn, but there are several types, so they are always useful, the astronaut is from the Milton Bradley playset Star Bird. While I believe the slightly demented-looking gentleman on the right is another of the Homies figures!

Cheers again to Chris, another vintage lot shared with the rest of us!
