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.

A Call To Arms (House of Campaign) - ACTA

33 Grange Crescent, North Thamesmead, SE28 8EX, UK
Fax: +44 (0)20 8244 7681

A one man band, he started by issuing figures he wanted to see on the market, some, but not all figures in each range are then produced in the other size; typically in the 1:32 range each set has 4 poses, while the 1:72 have 8, and the ex-large scale sculpts are not issued in 1:32 by ACTA.

He also had some success reissuing the old Britains Lilliput versions of the 'Khaki Infantry' mouldings and recently (2014) issued scale-downs of the Britains Deetail and Super-Deetail 54mm modern infantry as 1:72 scale figures. ACTA - as they are also known - additionally carried the Marksmen American Civil War figures arranged with the aid of Replicants and including ex-Britains Herald ACW poses in colours different from Marksmen.
