Re: HELP

i echo what has been said. Like Jon i usually paint up flesh first. Then I do the kit -light colours first then darker. Painting dark over light always works better than the other way round. I finish with boots and hair. I use old bases to hold figures during painting or use blu tack. Keep the bases...

Re: Serh_davi. ....aka Catsmad

He actually argued with me that the team is not the one I sold him, and it was done by SSG, as with the Boca 1981, just hope an Italian buys it. He said that both were bought from Renishaw and he has the Certificates to prove they are SSG. Now the discs have Top Spin on them!!!!! basically it is cr...

Re: Which team is it?

Yes Ralph things have changed these days. Dont see much trouble compared to the 80's. Ironically there was a bit of a disturbance at the Grimsby v Port Vale game i went to at the weekend. First trouble I have seen in a ground in a long time. Like you I never sought any bovver but it was pretty hard ...

Re: Which team is it?

Maine Road dangerous....surely not. I remember my car wouldnt start after a game once. Had to call the breakdown services who took forever it seemed. Even I was a tad uncomfortable whilst I waited. Moss Side could be scary especially after dark. That season was my only visit to York with City. It wa...

Francis lee is on the back row,Colin bell next to him
Nice work Jon. Really like the team (not just because it's City)

Despite all the stars we have today Colin Bell still remains my favourite City player ever.

Re: Which team is it?

I understand where you are coming from Ralph. The influx of money has made the club unrecognisable from the one I first started watching 35 years ago. We've gone from the (relatively likeable ...well to some anyway as we werent Man U) under achievers to a successful club and that inevitably broadens...

Re: Serh_davi. ....aka Catsmad

The guys really starting to hiss me off. It's all so dodgy. He lists teams fraudulently passing them off as originals. They fetch high sums (far excess of their worth) then they end up getting relisted soon after. Every time I go on Ebay these days I am faced by yet another Serh_Davi sale item.........

Re: Which team is it?

Great teams Richard. If I could turn back time I would have taken full advantage of the Special Service. I never knew it existed back then.......I would have blown lots of pocket money If I had. LOVE that City 2nd. That would have been on my wish list as a kid. My front 5 of Bell, Summerbee, Lee, Ma...
