Ref. 170 Burnley. Auction buy.

Thanks to Footiebadgebloke I now have a theme to follow!
So in keeping and homage to Derby County's team of 1996 including Igor Stimac the next auction buy to be restored is ref 170.
Strictly speaking it was Derbys 3rd kit but it fits nicely with the base option/derby link!

Ref. 8. Newcastle. Auction buy.

Thanks to Footiebadgebloke I now have a theme to follow!
So in keeping and homage to Derby County's greatest ever player Steve Bloomer, the next auction buy to be restored is ref 8.

Worn by Steve Bloomer and the rest of the team in 1892.
Current work in progress below.

Re: Auction buy. Arsenal ref. 47 recondition

Dettol liquid? I left them to soak, scrubbed with an old toothbrush and repeat (x3) Seems to get the job done? I have also read some of the notes of old posts which has helped! Plus my wife suggested I use acetone free nail varnish on the bases which has been brill ! She has plenty of varnish (and t...

Re: Auction buy. Arsenal ref. 47 recondition

Not glued in yet but IMHO looking a bit better than they did!
Shame images can be no bigger.

Re: Auction.

Many thanks again Footiebadgebloke, Team is now drying out and should be ready to post a photo later! Has got me thinking about what to do with next team? Will have another look through the catalogues before deciding! Also now found a website showing old derby kits that I can reference! We had some ...

Re: Auction buy. Arsenal ref. 47 recondition

Great insight, thank you. Just had to google 1969 cup final and sure enough yellow tops, blue shorts, yellow socks with blue trim! Unfortunately, it also shows Bob Wilson on his bum having been beaten by the Swindon centre forward. I wasn't born until 71 so missed this final but I remember Bob Wilso...

Re: Auction.

Cheers Footiebadgebloke, Great idea. I like the idea of adding some Rams teams! However, I have about 80 LW's and only 20 or so HW's and have been working on the principle that it is better to restore if at all possible. Surely what the good people of Tunbridge Wells would have wanted? I will add so...

Re: Auction.

Apologies, I'm still finding my way around the site so I will move this thread to the painting section (hopefully a more appropriate area) to show results of my efforts as soon as I have finished! It's very difficult to figure out where / how I should start a topic? Or If I am in the right section? ...

Re: Auction.

I have decided that sticking to my principles I should restore three of these teams to past glories! So the Arsenal away strip from 1970's is destined for these fellas! Except no 7 where the stem seems to have broken. Deffinitely Newcastle and possibly Villa for 3rd team? The walkers and box are goi...

Re: Auction.

That would make sense! Regards playing, I'm still having a hard time coming to terms with playing again at my age (40+). I don't have an issue with others playing just not sure it's for me! I have really enjoyed restoring and repairing some teams though. I have either found missing or broken player...
