Any ideas about this pair?

I bought these goalkeepers on eBay a few weeks ago. Don't ask me why, they just looked interesting. They are lead and I assume that the wire rods were straight at one time. Does anyone have any idea what game they originally came from?

Paul........ thanks for the offcuts idea. Making plaster casts would be great if it can be done. Think I will leave y...

Building a budget stadium

Just had a go at building terracing and a grandstand from mounting board. The board is incredibly strong when cut into small pieces and glued together. Have painted the three sections of terracing but not the grandstand yet. The grandstand was built from one sheet of standard size mounting board whi...

Re: Casting in Resin...

Great figures. Just seen the old photo of Walthamstow. Would have loved to have seen these figures in the longer shorts.

Re: Eye tests required

So by all accounts your just buying 190 spares and 19 keepers, the boxes being virtually worthless.

More 60's than 50's I would say. Looks good quality.

Re: After some BAS(e)IC advice

' Flick to Kick' says the astropitch was a development from the Football Express/Top Scorer fold-out pitches and became the pitch of choice for the major tournaments. As the cloth pitches continued to be made, you can only assume it was a further example of Subbuteo trying to replicate the real game...

Re: F.A.Cup 1978/79 P.N.E V Orient ....The Goals !!!!

Great shots Forfoxsake, you might have started something here. John Jackson used to live just round the corner from me in Hove during that period. Can only remember Ralph Coates at Burnley he must have been getting on a bit in 78/9. In those days most of the big stars moved down to play in the lower...

Re: Posting pics to the forum

When taking photo's to post on the forum it is much easier to resize the photo on the camera settings. If your camera allows you to do this. I think Cockney suggested this a few weeks ago on another post.

Re: After some BAS(e)IC advice

You can still pick up the more common HW teams on eBay for relatively small amounts of cash. The LW's are also OK and you can buy teams for less than £10. Like you I am only interested in the game I used to play.

Re: After some BAS(e)IC advice

I've never played with the new bases, is it really that much easier than the old ones. When I started playing in the 70's i did not need to practice for hours in order to play a game. Of course you get better the more you practice but do you need to be an instant expert. I am not so hung up on the s...

Re: guitar legends thread

Jester has it right there is only one true legend. The one that changed the way the guitar was played and all the rest followed.

Re: Didn't realise there was such a following still!!!

Simon Wellcome to the forum. You seem to be following a similar path to me. It was reading that book that got me started again.
