Re: Humbrol Acrylics

I used to use acrylics before switching to enamels. I found Humbrol & Revell fine. Vallejo Model Colour are also good imo. I didnt really like Tamiya though ( a bit washy).

Acrylics are easy to thin out with a spot of water if desired.

Another stripped down set of original Subbuteo figures.

This time painted up as Tottenham Hotspur 1978 ...Kent style as always.

Some nice original navy/white bases.

Re: Early 70's World Cup Box Set

Cheers guys. Yep seen that one Paul but as you say the box is a bit battered ...a bit too tatty for the price imo. But looks like it has the correct teams (WG, Hol, Eng) for a set with plastic rods and WC goals. Though I suppose in that era, as we have established many times, whatever the 'rules' we...

Re: Early 70's World Cup Box Set

got you mate. cheers. Thats makes sense.

Last question then.. what year did the WC goals and plastic GK rods first appear in this set? Was it before 1974?

Re: Early 70's World Cup Box Set

Thanks Paul

So am I right in thinking the set with the WC goals and plastic GK rod was after 1974 and that would only have Holland W Germany & England.

So the Italy, Brazil and England version would only appear in those with 'NEW" on the box and C122 goals and wired GK ie pre 1974.

Early 70's World Cup Box Set

Just seeking some advice from you guys about the teams found in the early 70's WC box sets. Specifically the ones that came with the 'modern' green fencing and white floodlights (replacing the red ones found in the original 1970 set) I believe there were 2 variations. An updated 1970 version . It st...

Re: cityfan247 - Custom Paint Jobs

I'm getting there fella. I was very lucky. It was a charity ride setting off from near London. The chap just behind was a heart doctor would you believe! He basically revived me and saved my life by the side of the road. I am back on the bike but not doing anywhere near the distances I was. Do 25-30...
