About Me

No Fixed Abode, Home Counties, United Kingdom
I’m a 56-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.

1975 [ WWII] Australian Infantry, 01750-1 / 9 01750 / 01750 / A01750 - HO/OO

After a long weekend drinking short cocktails at the Blue Oyster Bar, the Bavarian Boys-like-Boys Brigade attended the Vladimir Putin Garden of Earthly Delights paint-balling venue and giant sunflower nursery, while Alice dreamily sang old Grace Slick and Jefferson Airplane numbers over the PA, Jeffrey or 'naughty boy' as the others called him; waved the flag of Oceania from a giant pin an equally giant rabbit had given him...

Once Airfix launched this set, Montaplex dropped the WWI Americans with their baby kangaroos (WWI Post) for the new Zealand envelope, in favour of copies of the Australians, the ANZAC's being dressed the same it made sense, but the artwork on the envelope remained as execrable has it had been in the first place, by remaining exactly the same!
