Re: ‘NEW LUTON’...

I think that neckline was by design because every example of that variation I have seen has the oversized V collar. Same with the Villa 74 and United 100 teams. And the Haiti 175 variant before I forget. Not every Kent Housewife skills were lacking. I know they weren't....I knew the best of them! J...

Re: ‘NEW LUTON’...

I've never got my head around why SSG tried to replicate the collared shirt with a huge 'v' at the neck. And why they chose to do it on some teams and not others with collars. If you were a Kent Housewife trying to paint 100's of those Luton's with 'V' and stripes to side, every day, you would have...

Re: ‘NEW LUTON’...

Part of the appeal of the HW's is the imperfect painting, which gives them all a character of their own. Love the way the hair has been slapped on.

Re: Gullseye solo League Cup Final

I know they were both in Division One around that time, but it's good to see some less familiar names appearing in finals and winning trophies. I have four divisions of 12 and operate two up and two down. It just happened that both these teams are now in the First Division. The two Manchester’s, Li...

Re: Gullseye solo League Cup Final

Love the players with the Afro. How did you manage that?
That player is Ricky Hill and the team is from 1981/2

I used milliput modelling clay which drys rock hard.

Gullseye solo League Cup Final

This years final was contested by Luton Town and Swansea City both from the First Division. Both clubs have never won the trophy and Swansea’s first appearance in a final. Stein put Luton into a 1-0 halftime lead. Irwin equalised midway through the second half in a close encounter. With the game loo...

Re: CELLULOID TEAMS

I agree, regarding the Continental sets. By the early sixties the celluloid teams were either considered a thing of the past, or were simply not 'pushed' by the stores. Everyone had the 'new' players. There are certainly some very nice teams in your collection. Are you planning to play them in any ...

Re: "Mint Condition" - Corse It Is!

Yes he is not very good at rebasing, broken bars on both efforts. I suspect with the Hearts one he broke the bar by levering out the player on the disc. You can see where the foot has been forced up out of the original glue.
