Re: Ref 110 Trivia

perhaps...you may have a point.

I know Lugano have historically had young players on loan from Serie A clubs.

Re: REF 77 WITH SOCK TRIM....

yes you are right Jon. A typical 249 Lavsl is a darker orange.

This team is without a doubt a 77. All be it a nice example of a slight variation to the norm.

Re: Ref 110 Trivia

nice find Mark I have always found it strange that no team from the Italian region of Switzerland has ever made a real mark. Lugano are probably the biggest team from there but havnt really done much. Bellinzona Locarno and Chiasso have spent most of their history outside the top flight. instead Ger...

Re: Ref 110 Trivia

Another example of Subbuteo's idiosyncrasies of the time. Team names not quite right, odd choices of teams, variations to kits, some kits not accurate.......the joys of Subbuteo particularly in the HW era. For me it's part of the charm. One of my favourite Subbuteo items are the full colour poster t...

Re: Most spent on a team?

Sorry Mark my old mate but I can't. Dont think i have ever spent more than £40 on a team. But when you bid for the slotcar you felt it was worth it and i am sure you will get a lot of satisfaction from it. Hey we have seen HW teams sell for ££££££ on E-bay and I am pretty sure some of them werent ko...

Re: ONE MANS MAGNIFICENT OBSESSION.....

What a fantastic collection Mark. Superb. I can only imagine how long it has taken to collect and how long it took to put that montage together. I am glad you did. You have quite a few refs i would dearly love to have. I find base combos interesting and how different they can make a team look. I hav...

Re: Ref 83 or repainted Ref 1?

I think with refs like 83 there is very little to do to transform them from another reference. A couple of stripes and your'e done. As a consequence it can be difficult to pick out a touched up team from a genuine one. Based on those photos i would say they look genuine to me imo but it's hard to be...

Re: cityfan247 - Custom Paint Jobs

Picked up a paint brush for the first time in almost a year today. Revived an old battered Ireland R4 rugby set. Turned them into a kit Subbuteo didnt produce in their range...a classic Northampton RUFC. Complete with a kicker. I still blame Jim (Forfoxsake) for sparking my interest in the rugby set...

There were some very nice teams and stuff on sale. If i had the cash could...

Re: Way out west...

Very nice team. Good for you for sticking with your local club. Not everyone supports 'big' clubs. Whilst i do support Manchester City and have done for over 40 years i feel more attached to my local boyhood team Grimsby Town these days (in the English 4th level) who i have been watching since 1976....
