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.

Flourished: Early/mid- 2000's? (resurrected, current)
Mario Zecca - Artist/Proprietor/Publisher/Sculptor
Charles Morgan - Artist

Apparently a relatively short lived On-off (currently 'on') venture as part of the owner's other ventures/experiments in the creative arts. White-metal figures in 40mm or toward the larger-end of the 28/35mm bracket, game rule-sets and free downloads were produced with more planned. Most links that are still surviving on the web redirect to Mario's Facebook page, where he's involved in on-line gaming, graphics and self-publishing, but not - sadly; figures or rule sets, one feels however, that he will come back to gaming some day?

A sculpting service was also offered at one point.

The miniatures are still available as is the game Kung Fu Family. I have written a satirical fantasy novel in the interim, “The Goddess of Pigland” and am planning to return to miniature making.
