Lovely painting. Those shirt number look great - always tricky to do by hand.

Re: Restoration and fixing up projects

As suspected, the Ref 54 players had been removed from their original bases and put on the all whites. The green discs and white bases were hidden under a mass of turquoise paint in the 2nd team of the two team lot. Here are three pics, one of the original hw54, one of the bases covered in paint and...

Re: melchester......again!!!

Endless supply of ref 41's on Ebay. Add a dash of yellow paint, put a red sticker on the box and bob's your uncle.

Pair of teams with bases swapped I meant - not pair of players

Re: Restoration and fixing up projects

I bought the team last week, As you can see from the close up (looking at the socks) it's a ref 54 - but the all white bases have got me stumped a bit. It was part of a two team purchase, I got them both for £8. The other team, (I'll show it later) has green and white bases, currently hiding under p...

Re: Stripping & Painting

Nice painting style - look very authentic.

One thing though, shouldn't the OPS have the white socks and the WBA the yellow ones?

Re: England Away 1982

Apparently, the goalkeepers numbers were the same as the ones used on the players shorts for the 1982 World Cup. For more information, have a look here:

Re: Restoration and fixing up projects

Finally got around to finishing off the HW 173. Getting the red off the discs was a total pain and I ended up swapping some of them over for other bases. Always heartbreaking when you pull them out of the oven cleaner and see shades of the original team underneath. Apologies for the light quality in...

Re: February half term ...

Good to see one of my old teams getting a run out (Malmo). How's that box lid shaping up - is it still in good condition? Looks like one of the ones I printed onto paper and then attached to a white box using spray mount. I was always worried that they would come unstuck over time, but it was less f...

Re: Stadium update

Wonderful, well worth changing the pitch Cheers! I had to trim down the borders and remove several inches from the playing surface by cutting along several of the pitch markings then gluing them down (felt like a carpet fitter). You can't see the cut lines and it plays well, plus I'm pleased with t...
