HippopoThames

An installation by  Florentjin Hofman who is best known for the giant rubber duck, the HippopoThames has recently taken up residence in London. Firstly at Nine Elms close to Battersea Power Station & then at St. Katharine Docks on the North-East side of Tower Bridge.

Toyfair (again); (again)

*The one where I thought it was a Bugatti at first too…:P*

I’d missed a couple of toyfair events again due to being a bit “under the weather” so made the effort to visit recently.

It was not well attended & at least 2 regular stall-holders were missing. Not many bargains & only came away with a modern 1/60th scale (approx.) 1933 MG & a 1950s Hornby Dublo 3 rail buffer set. Lovely little items those, die-cast with spring-loaded buffers. My collection of 3 rail stuff is growing slowly & I am close to having an operational layout albeit a small one.
