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.

5th Wheel Scalemodels - 5th Scale



USA

See also; Boley, and Hongwell / Cararama

Retail shop (now defunct?)  that offered a few original HO gauge / 1:87th scale models in the mid-2000's, now seem to have ceased trading. Material unknown, but probably a die-cast/plastic mix, the models were supplied by Boley, who were themselves supplied by Hongwell / Cararama, all of whose models are just such mixed-media pieces. Models were of articulated tractor-trailer units in the liveries of (imaginary?) drinks companies. Two cab-units were available, both Internationals; the 4300 and 4900.
