Restoring Floodlights

I am looking to restore some old Subbuteo floodlights I have. They are the classic white pylons from the 70's. I have purchased some of the LED lights to fit them from Hogron's site which are on the way to me. The pylons I have are discoloured in the main to varying degrees over time. What I would l...

Re: Where to buy?

Yeh Ebay is probably the best place for the volume and variety. At least if LW's are your thing you havent got as much of a problem with repaints and non genuine stuff. If it was HW's Ebay can be a minefield to navigate for the less experienced collector. And the Subbuteo Fair at Sheffield usually h...

Re: 3D design of a Subbuteo grandstand and scoreboard /PA

Hi Ronald. Just been looking back on this thread and visited your website www.subbuteostadium.com I have to say the quality of the work looks outstanding. I have been aware of 3d printers though must confess dont really know how they work. Your results are quite spectacular. I have to congratulate y...

Re: E BAY PURCHASE.

Thank you for the comments. I havent decided what to sell yet except a ref 29. This one from this joblot replaces one from my collection which is not in as good nick. Currently on Ebay if anyone's interested. I am getting really sad these days. Not only have I gone down the route of different base c...

Re: E BAY PURCHASE.

Really pleased with the 'lot' as a whole. All the teams are in excellent condition. The only negative was all the boxes including the box sets were 'secured' by a few strips of parcel tape. But very happy all the same. The 124 is the highlight of course. Worth more on its own than I paid for the ent...

Re: E BAY PURCHASE.

Cheers guys. I was extremely lucky Paul. Just on Ebay at the right time. I must have been the first to see it as I am sure the first person who did would have bought it there and then (especially for the asking price). Definately keeping the 124 and 29. Didnt have a 124 and the 29 i know is far bett...

E BAY PURCHASE.

What i love to see is when members post up pics of stuff they've picked up. Be it Ebay, Car Boots, adverts etc. It shows what can still be lurking out there and that one day you may get lucky enough to get your hands on. Gives us all hope. Sometimes a (slight) bit of envy creeps in I suppose. Never ...

Re: subbuteo 1970s

There's a lot about and as a result dont fetch good prices. I have 3 or 4 sets which i have had on ebay a few times and taken to Renishaw several times and never sold. There doesnt seem to be a big demand for box sets in general , even the larger floodlighting sets. I find it's really only the HW Wo...
