About Me

My photo
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.

Bob Passamenti - sole operator?

Reported to be/have been producers of 1:500 scale Napoleonic figures, digging on the Internet finds nothing but a brief mention on The Miniatures Page, however there is some confirmation in the above cross-referenced commercial 3D printer's site, see; 3DScanCo.

The same research reveals a man called Bob Passamenti to be behind the idea, which was to produce a model of Waterloo in the given scale, with scanning technology providing the manpower on a 1:1 basis, one figure to represent each soldier on the day.

It remains to be seen whether or not anything will come of the exercise and there may also be an intellectual property rights question over the figures that were scanned to be scaled-down?
