Re: Starting to Paint

Hi Chelseaman I have been painting for around a year now and really enjoy it. Firstly i can paint subbuteo teams i simply could not afford to buy and also teams subbuteo didn't do. .

Re: SPINKHILL AND RENISHAW COMMUNITY CENTRE OCT 2010!

Got a nice 207 in a printed named box for a tenner and a 208 for the same- each had one repaired figure. Had a word with Spud, top fella -so was Fo...

Re: wonder what this used to be...

Could have been almost anything- looks like the only original part is the Black outer base. May have been a red inner originally and i think i see a hint of a red cuff on centre 2nd row player. Also- not sure if its the lighting but i think I can see stripes under the painted white shirts. My guess ...

Thought I'd better raise the average age back up a bit. 41 Can't really remember my 1st set- probably a Floodlighting edition ( I was a spoilt git) circa 72/73. have 'lost' a few teams over the years including some rare ones like a 185. I don't remember ever throwing any away but hey. Still have abo...

I have watched as this forum has descended into to Sadslayer v Heavyweight slanging match and I think most of us are getting a bit tired with it all. Now Sadslayer before you accuse me of simply being another member of this so called 'closed shop' i should point out i know neither you or heavyweight...

I haven't sold any teams but have contrived to lose one or two in house moves etc....a mint Motherwell 185 springs to mind- doubt I will ever afford to replace it as well as a 103 Messina. I have a 119 with a white/sky blue base combo- i know it's genuine as like most of my teams I bought it new in ...

Fetched ?57.00........oh dear.

That one didn't need much of a paint job either. I think I've seen a WBA away kit-ref 326 on E-bay this week-otherwise known to you and me as Norwich ref 28.
Again, a couple of brush strokes et voila -??????

So frustrating

I logged on today with the intention of asking the exact same question.

I have actually put in a bid (all be it a low one) for the Farense team so would also be interested in people's thoughts.

I don't know but it just seems a bit iffy that teams turn up after 30 years 'factory sealed'
