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.

News, Views...Etc...30th Plastic Warrior Toy Soldier and Assorted Other Goodies Show!

A week tomorrow! You need to start planning entry (and exit?) strategies now, budget? Bags? No bigger than that! Lunch? Parking? There's a fair bit at the venue. More budget! And some spare cash.

It's only the bloody 30TH! Thirty years...thirty shows! How many have you been to? I missed the first 8 or 9? Soem people have been to all of them...not least the organisers, Paul, Peter and fellow blogger Brian.

I knocked this up a couple of years ago and forgot to post it last year...it'll get you to within smelling distance of all that lovely polymer! You can't miss it, it's the big inter-war style architecture pub on the bend just before (northbound) or after (southbound) the NEC Harlequins ground (are they still sponsored by NEC?)

There is FREE parking, and a Premier Inn on the same site for anyone who wants to stay the night

Details of the venue can be found here;

Winning Post

This is not so accurate, I'll try to sort it out with a better one, basically the venue is accessible from the A3-316 main road into/out-of London heading West-south-west, through the Front car park there is also vehicle and pedestrian access from Percy Road.

For people coming by public transport; Whitton Station is 3 minutes walk and gets 8 trains an hour from Waterloo. See you there, unless you poke my eyes out first!
