Well, back to work tomorrow :( , so here are a selection of this weeks efforts.

Stripy bases, a short sleeved version of the figure (its unbelievable how much work it takes to get the basic figures right !) and a 'Victorian' version, two Wirral Clubs which are close to my heart, Tranmere Rovers and New Brighton Tower (sourced kits from" onclick=";return false; - a brilliant site!!). Gave them a Hercule Poirot hairstyle and moustache to add a bit more of a period feel :)

They are replicas of the flat figures 1947-1972 ish .. so yes they are taller than the OO scale figures ...
