Re: STADIUM OF ALEMANNIA AACHEN

A lovely authentic looking stadium. I prefer this one to many of the larger more modern stadiums. Seems to have a bit more character.

Munich Set

A Munich set sold on Ebay this afternoon for £670. One light broken on the scoreboard, one reflector and hood missing on the floodlights and the Italy team missing. The box and contents otherwise looked in good condition. Not sure what the going rate for this set is but £670 seems a huge amount.

Re: CHARLES STADDEN DESIGNED FIGURES FOR SCALEXTRIC

There is a piece on Charlie Stadden in the Flick to Kick book by Daniel Tatarsky which is worth picking up if anyone has not seen it. Includes nice photo of him with one of Subbuteo's first moulding machines.

Re: 1950's Flats

Thanks for that Cockney the photo's look great. I think these should be called the Dynasty Cellys.

Just looked in the old Price Lists and see that the cellys were originally only available in refs 1-18. The 1950/51 lists states that refs 19 - 24 will be available from 1st November.

Re: 1950's Flats

Thanks for your comments, it seems that the square shoulder celly ones are all at least pre 1955. I looked on Peter Upton's site and a few others but no dates are given for the square shoulder flats, only comment is that they were earlier. I new that Cockney would have some but as he only has a few ...

1950's Flats

Can anyone tell me when the square shouldered flats were replaced by the round shouldered. I have a 1950's box set around 1956/7 which has the round shoulders and wonder if these are the right type for the set. I expect the answer will be that the set could have come with either. Any comments welcome.

Re: Outworkers...

On the subject of paying higher rates to certain outworkers, I always found it odd that the outworkers who stuck the two halves of the balls together using tricoethelene, got no more than the going rate. That stuff stank to hell and lingered for ages. Should have got danger money :lol: Mark, I hope...

Re: Outworkers...

Liono is right , they did put the best painters on the more detailed models. If you check out the Tunbridge Wells Museum site there are individual accounts posted by the outworkers and one of them confirms this point. Apparently some of the painters earned a higher rate than others.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - SUBBUTEO COME BACK IN MARKET

Cockney Not sure I would agree. The amount of collectors seems to be growing and spans a large age group. We all have collections of the old flat sets and teams which I expect most of us never played with. I think the same will happen with those that never played with the heavyweights. Plus the fact...
